At Halsbury Travel we’re passionate about inspiring and showing young people the benefits of language and intercultural skills and the exciting career opportunities available to a person with these abilities. That’s why we are proud to be a sponsor of the East Midlands Young Enterprise Europe competition, which is designed to highlight the importance of foreign languages for success in business today.
The challenge for students aged 16-17 from local East Midlands schools was to consider how they could adapt their business strategy to trade with other countries, which they then had to present to a panel of judges.
The prize for the winning students from the Boston Grammar Schools Federation is a fully expensed trip to Bratislava in Slovakia, which is organised and partly funded by ourselves, to take part in the Young Enterprise Europe Trade Fair.
If you want to inspire your students in this way a school trip could be the perfect answer. Choose from our language or business studies trips to Europe and worldwide.
