David Cameron reveals next job after quitting politics

David Cameron’s first role since quitting politics will see him help boost a skills programme for teenagers that he set up as prime minister.
Mr Cameron will oversee the expansion of the National Citizen Service (NCS) into a scheme available to all teenagers, as chairman of NCS Patrons.
The group will bring together a senior cross-party and cross-sector group of patrons and ambassadors to help the service become a "permanent national institution

Sounds like a cushy job imo, and one that is about to cost the taxpayers a great deal of money.
What is a "social action project" anyway?   It all seems to be rather vague.

What I think would be more useful and character building is to bring back the Technical Colleges frankly.
Provide training and job experience to 15-17 year olds who do not wish to follow a more academic career.
The lack of proper skills training in this country is deplorable - but then that is jmo.


The former prime minister’s announcement comes as the Government introduces a National Citizen Service Bill to create a Royal Charter to put the NCS on a permanent legal footing.

The NCS is open to 15 to 17-year-olds and sees groups of teenagers enjoy team outdoor activity trips before being mentored in the community, and ultimately deliver their own social action project.

"With cross-party support, this will create a Royal Charter to secure the NCS Trust as a permanent national institution that can ultimately offer a place to every 16- and 17-year-old.

"That should be our goal - not necessarily a compulsory programme, but one that is universally available and becomes a normal part of growing up for every teenager.

"But making NCS a rite of passage requires more than political leadership

Agree 100% B'bell re tech colleges. Skills like plumbing, carpentry, tiling and so on.

Team outdoor activity? Sounds like paintballing!

Just what I`ve been thinking for ages now. Why does academia have more value than artisanship and technical know-how and music? I don`t even mind the idea of grammar schools for the more academic child but why don`t they have more Technical Colleges and Schools and give them as much prestige as a Grammar School. At present there is a mistaken belief that a grammar school is better. I`d rather my children were clever with their hands than with academic stuff.
