Careers and Employability Skills
At Stowupland we are acutely aware of the changing landscape of higher education, employment and apprenticeships, all of which are highly competitive. Therefore it is part of our character to instil the importance of employability skills. We enhance these through our work with the lower school through mentoring and leadership and through student forum, committees and wider volunteering opportunities.
