Research highlights that employers have consistently raised concerns that young people are leaving education without key employability skills and a general awareness of the world of work.

The Plymouth Studio School seeks to address this by developing strong links with local employers and delivering employability skills through all aspects of the curriculum.

Our vision is to develop strong links with local employers and work together with them to create a highly skilled workforce for the future. We are already working with a wide range of employers across different industry sectors and we will continue to develop these relationshsips to ensure our students can gain the skills they need for their future.
