Sajid Javid, a former student at the FE Stroud College, has been appointed new Secretary of State for Culture, Media, Sport and Equalities after the controversial resignation of Maria Miller MP.
Javid has been widely hailed as a rising star within the Conservative Party and is the first of the 2010 in-take of MPs to hold such ministerial responsibilities.
Javid, unlike the majority of his now cabinet colleagues attended a comprehensive school before attending Stroud’s FE college. He went onto study Economics and Politics at Exeter University before moving straight into the banking industry.
In 2010 he was elected the Conservative Member of Parliament for Bromsgrove.
