Dr Graeme Hall appointed as Chief Executive of UK Skills

UK Skills has announced that Dr Graeme Hall has been appointed as its Chief Executive. Hall has been Acting Chief Executive since April 2004.

Having left school at 15, and subsequently completing an apprenticeship in the motor trade, Hall taught motor vehicle students in further education colleges for 13 years. Completing a first degree and a PhD in materials and metallurgy during this time, he moved into college management and was a head of engineering and construction before completing his service in further education as Assistant Principal at Lambeth College, London.

Hall moved to UK Skills in 2000 as Deputy Chief Executive and the UK's Technical Delegate to WorldSkills.

Chris Humphries CBE, Chairman of UK Skills and Director General of City & Guilds commented: "We are delighted to announce the appointment of Graeme Hall as Chief Executive of UK Skills. Graeme is a passionate champion of vocational skills and training; his vision and insight for the future development of the organisation will be crucial to its continued success".

UK Skills was established in 1990 with the aim of raising skill levels in the UK through skills competitions and managing the UK team which competes in the WorldSkills Competition. In recent years the organisation has widened the scope of its operations to include the management of the National Training Awards.
