Young people from six schools in Leeds and Bradford are getting an opportunity to hone their business and enterprise skills with a unique challenge from Leeds’ Trinity Kitchen – the pop-up street food space at Trinity Leeds shopping centre in the city centre.
The Trinity Kitchen Challenge, now in its fourth year, raises aspirations and introduces enterprise skills to local young people as well as make them aware of the opportunities available in retail.
The students attended a launch at the Trinity Leeds Centre Management Suite on 7 & 8 February where they were asked to create their own pop-up food concept to feature at Trinity Kitchen before taking a tour of Trinity Kitchen and interviewing vendors for their business planning research. The students also took part in interactive workshops focused on marketing, costing and pricing to help them create their concept.
Volunteer vendors and managers from Trinity Leeds will mentor and coach the Year 9 and 10 students over the next month with 60 young people from Beckfoot School, Southfield Grange, Grange Technology College, Carr Manor School and John Smeaton Academy taking part in the challenge.
