How would you shape tomorrow?

At The Skills Show, City & Guilds launched its Shape Tomorrow competition to give one teenager the chance to help shape their future by winning a day’s work experience with top chef, restaurateur and food writer Mark Hix at his restaurant, Tramshed. The competition was open to all 14-19 year olds who could enter through the City & Guilds Facebook page or at The Skills Show itself. As part of their entry, they were asked to submit a short video or written piece explaining what they think young people need to help them shape their tomorrow and achieve the future they deserve.

The winner, Junior, was selected by a panel including Mark Hix and City & Guilds. This video shows how he found the experience, and what he learnt during the course of the day.
