If you find the Company to your liking, you have been a Freeman for one year and gained Freedom of the City of London (see below), you can increase your contribution to the Company by applying to become a Liveryman. 

This entitles you to be nominated for the Court and become a Warden and Master in time. You will also be entitled to attend Common Hall and vote for the Lord Mayor and his or her Sheriffs. 

Once clothed as  a Liveryman you should wear a Livery pin on your gown to distinguish you from Freemen.

Freedom of the City of London

In order to become a Liveryman with the Company of Educators, Freemen of the Educators must also become the Free of the City of London. 

To gain Freedom of the City of London you need to make an appointment with the Chamberlain’s Court via email chamberlains.court@cityoflondon.gov.uk or call on 020 7332 3055.

At this time you will need to produce (1) Your Freedom of the Educators certificate (2) Identity documents (they will tell you what they need). They currently charge £100 and you will probably be required to pay this at this time. If they are satisfied then you make another appointment for the formal ceremony which takes about half an hour and you will receive a certificate at this time. You may also purchase other items that indicate you are Free of the City of London. You can take along family and friends.
