We were delighted to welcome Ruddington-based GeoSLAM Ltd to the academy on 14 January to launch a new business challenge with our Year 8 students.

As part of their modern foreign language lessons, the students have been tasked with promoting GeoSLAM’s 3D scanning technology in another foreign language. They must design a message in no more than 90 words and representatives from the company will return to the academy to announce the winners.

GeoSLAM operates across the world with offices in 53 countries. 80 staff at the company speak another foreign language and this new project will help our students understand the importance and value in speaking other languages to improve their prospects in the high tech job markets of the future.
