Children to be given job advice

What do you want to be?

What do you want to be when you grow up? A popstar, doctor or maybe even a footballer? Well now the government wants to help you work it out.

Children as young as seven are going to be given advice to help them choose what job they might want to do later in life.

The scheme is being tried out in 38 primary schools in England.

It's hoped it will inspire children, and get them thinking about going to university and future jobs early on.

There will also be lots of job advice and help online.
