Education secretary Nicky Morgan on new careers body

Employers will take the lead in a new careers body that will broker links between schools and businesses in England, say ministers.

The government has allocated £20m to start up the company but expects it ultimately to be fully independent.

The move follows concerns that careers advice is far worse since schools took over responsibility for it from local councils in 2012.

Launching the scheme at the Crossrail construction site in London, Education Secretary Nicky Morgan told BBC News the aim was to "inspire young people".
