Former footballer Le Saux to host GAI Education Awards

  • 30 Jul 2018

Former England footballer Graeme Le Saux will be a guest speaker at this year’s Guild of Architectural Ironmongers (GAI) Education Awards.

Graeme will lead the celebrations, which will honour the incredible educational achievements of the door hardware industry’s rising stars in the annual event, taking place at London’s Royal Lancaster hotel on 8 November.

Alongside his role in the national team, Graeme played for Chelsea, Southampton and Blackburn Rovers, helping the latter win the Premier League in 1995.

Since retiring from football in 2005, Graeme has done punditry for the BBC and often undertakes project work with the FA, UEFA, FIFA and the Premier League.

The GAI Education Awards, which are sponsored by dormakaba, include Gold, Silver and Bronze awards for the top students in the Diploma and the Pinnacle Award, sponsored by ASSA ABLOY, for the student with the best aggregate results over the three years of the Diploma programme.

The GAI Diploma is designed to give students a high level of product knowledge and the ability to write accurate hardware specifications and quotations.

The qualification is ideally suited for those in customer service, contract management, scheduling and estimating, and sales.

GAI president, David Stacey, commented: “The Education Awards is a great opportunity to recognise students’ hard work over the past three years.

“It is also a chance for companies to celebrate the individuals within their teams who are going above and beyond to offer architects and contractors high-quality technical knowledge.”

The only recognised architectural ironmongery qualification in the world, the Guild’s education programme has ran for over 50 years, training future generations of architectural ironmongers to British and European standards.
