North Somerset Enterprise and Technology College (NSETC) students went home victorious this week as they won a business challenge.

Students from five schools in the area had to come up with a brand new business venture which was then presented to chief executives and a panel of judges.

Jordan Andrews, George Buckthought and Ben England were the winning team from NSETC thanks to their novel idea called DoodleZen. It is a pen which has customised modules to fit the users’ needs.

James Whitbread, head of business, economics and IT at NSETC, said: “We are incredibly proud of our students.”
