Clegg to launch 'inspiring initiative'

Nick Clegg will help launch a new scheme to send workers into state schools to talk to children about their careers.

The Education and Employers Taskforce, the charity behind the plan, wants to sign up more than 100,000 voluntary speakers who can inspire youngsters about the possibilities that are open to them.

The scheme, called Inspiring the Future, is meant to give state school pupils access to the kind of careers advice and first-hand accounts that many private schools offer.
