Call for employers to play a bigger role in the classroom

School teachers and parents are calling for UK employers to increase their involvement in education by playing a greater role in advising – and providing work experience for – young people. That’s according to new independent research released today by the Association of Colleges to mark Colleges Week 2012, which runs from 11-18 November 2012.

Over two-thirds of parents want educators to put greater focus on preparing their offspring for employment.
