School students make the Fresh Connection

Scala Consulting has piloted an interactive supply chain workshop at the University of Huddersfield with students from Rastrick High School with its Young Fresh Connection scheme.

Rastrick School’s students, studying a supply chain module as part of their BTEC L3 Business Studies course, were engaged in an online simulation battle to turn around the fortunes of a struggling fruit juice manufacturer by the name of The Fresh Connection.

Rebecca Sohotha, subject leader for economics, business and enterprise at Rastrick School said: “Young Fresh Connection proved to be a dynamic simulation that our students got their teeth into and were able to see the impact of their individual decision making on the success of their team outcomes.”

Scala is in its third year of running the Fresh Connection simulation in the UK and will kick off gthe 2012 competition in March with some of the biggest corporations across the UK.
