Businesses have been Raising the Bar in Suffolk by talking to school pupils about key employability skills, in an effort to prepare them for entering the world of work.

Suffolk County Council has been working in partnership with schools, including Castle Manor Academy, and arranging for local businesses to visit schools across Suffolk and educate young people about employment opportunities in the county.

The sessions are designed to improve attainment and increase aspirations for young people in Suffolk.

Since September 2013, Suffolk schools have been engaged by local businesses, and by the end of this Spring term over 2,700 pupils will have taken part, this figure continues to rise with an extensive programme which continues to be rolled out across the county.
