Following on from their success at the national stages of the Young Enterprise International Skills@Work Challenge, Special Touch Accessories has returned from Bulgaria with not one but three prizes. The contest tested students from the nine participating countries on their business acumen, communication and ingenuity. As part of the two day event learners were split into twelve new teams to see how individual members worked within a new dynamic as well as understanding and respecting different cultures.

The groups were set a Microsoft business challenge where they had to design a product that could support the government via electronic means. Such a project involved studying the feasibility of the idea, financial aspects, time constraints and marketing strategies. Jodie Clough who is currently studying BTEC National Diploma in Business achieved the prize for integrating most effectively with other cultures. Kirsty Cummings and Abdul Sheraz also BTEC National Diploma in Business learners, won accolades and received a digital camera and a Microsoft Office package respectively. Congratulations to all those who took part.
