PM's son to enter teaching
The prime minister Tony Blair's son, Nicky Blair, is to embark upon a career in teaching after he graduates from university.

The 21-year-old is set to join the Teach First programme, which aims to place the UK's top graduates in the country's most challenging schools.

Confirming the news, Teach First said that Nicky Blair would be one of more than 300 students to receive a place on the scheme which will begin in July 2007.

"The aim of the programme is to address educational disadvantage by transforming exceptional graduates into effective, inspirational teachers and leaders in all fields," the agency stated.

The prime minister's son is currently studying history and will then begin six weeks of training over the course of the summer.

There are presently 90 schools in Greater London and Greater Manchester employing members of the training scheme, with the programme expected to be extended to the Midlands this year.
