Recently, Trainee Business & Marketing Assistant Bradley Longford and Communications Officer Catherine Spooner attended a Business Day at Holy Trinity School. The day gave students a valuable chance to talk to a range of employers and take part in a Business Enterprise Challenge.

Catherine, who is working on the redevelopment of Barnsley town centre, spent the day talking to students about their future careers and pathways into construction. Many of the students expressed an interest in key areas such as architecture, design and engineering, with a number of students inquiring about site management.

During the Business Enterprise Challenge, Bradley helped students think of business ideas for a pop-up kitchen, inspired by the Trinity Kitchen in Leeds. The Trinity Kitchen allows businesses to set up a temporary store for eight weeks and sell food to members of the public. The students needed to consider the types of businesses that could be successful and then presented their ideas to a panel of judges.

The winning business idea was Wicked Raps, with a plan to sell a variety of different sandwich wraps to students whilst playing rap music to encourage a unique atmosphere. The winners thoroughly considered their target audience, found a gap in the market and had a wide product range, with a realistic and feasible idea.

A student from Holy Trinity said: “It was inspiring. We got to be creative and learn about business and marketing with something we enjoy and know a lot about.”
