Cameron in work experience call

Cameron in work experience call

David Cameron has said the decline in work experience schemes in UK schools is "very, very bad news".

The Prime Minister called for business people to "go back into school and explain why what they do is so exciting".

Mr Cameron told a PM Direct event that schools needed to have plans for how they were going to teach children about enterprise and business.

However, he said adding more subjects to the national curriculum was not the answer.

Mr Cameron blamed health and safety requirements for the decline in school work experience schemes, saying “a lot of kids aren’t getting the sort of work experience that you used to get because all the concerns about health and safety".
