In January 2016, Rayner was appointed as Shadow Minister for Pensions by Jeremy Corbyn and was promoted later in 2016 to the Shadow Cabinet as Shadow Secretary of State for Education and Shadow Minister for Women and Equalities. As Shadow Education Secretary, she proposed the creation of a National Education Service (NES) modelled on the National Health Service (NHS).
She endorsed Rebecca Long-Bailey in the 2020 Labour Party leadership election, who came second to Keir Starmer, and instead successfully stood for the deputy leadership, after which she was appointed as party chair and national campaign coordinator.

Sajid Javid calls out Angela Rayner
In an interview with Sky News she can be heard saying: “We’ve got Sadiq Javid who starts as health secretary.”
In another clip for an interview with Radio 4’s Today programme she said “Our NHS is staved of the resources it needs, and Sadiq Javid, who’s coming into that role,” before being cut off by the presenter.
Taking aim at Labour’s deputy, Mr Javid wrote on social media: “Angela Rayner, I know we’re both sons of Pakistani bus drivers, but we’re different people.
“It’s Sajid Javid and Sadiq Khan.”
Conservative MPs have enjoyed mocking Ms Rayner following her latest gaffe.
One Tory backbencher said they could not understand how the Ashton-under-Lyne MP had managed to get elected to the position.
Joking about her intelligence, they told Express.co.uk: “She’s as dense as a James Joyce novel but without the substance.”
They added: “I feel rather sorry for Keir Starmer.
“I actually think he’s a good man and Britain needs a good Opposition Party, but he hasn’t got a chance with people like Angela Rayner around him.”
Ms Rayner was directly elected by Labour Party members at the same time Sir Keir Starmer took over the reins from Jeremy Corbyn. It means he is unable to remove her from the position even if he thinks she is doing a poor job.
