I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'all-round education' is the definition.
'upbringing' can be an answer for 'education' (I've seen this before). I am not certain of the 'all-round' bit.

'lead university starts calling' is the wordplay.
'lead' becomes 'Pb' (Pb is the chemical symbol for lead).
'university' becomes 'U' (abbreviation for university).
'starts' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).
'calling' becomes 'ringing' ('ring' can be a synonym of 'call').
'pb' put after 'u' is 'upb'.

'for' is the link.

(Other definitions for upbringing that I've seen before include "(A person's) rearing" , "education" , "Childhood treatment and instruction" .)
