2018–present day

Doing better for businesses

The city’s own talents and skills academy with a commitment to supporting business aims and aspirations.

Ambition:Leeds presents that ongoing high street support for the city’s retail and hospitality sectors and is expanding its services to support the changing training and development needs of all sectors of the business community in uncertain economic times.

From management courses and health and safety to an array of bite-size digital training with Leeds Boost, another LeedsBID initiative, the focus is on responding to new opportunities and a demand for new skillsets.

The new year sees further development building on the success of Ambition:Leeds to deliver additional support services to businesses in Leeds city centre.

“The Prince’s Trust is delighted to be working in partnership with LeedsBID and Ambition:Leeds to support young people into employment. Having strong relationships with employers is key to ensuring our support programmes really do connect with the world of work. Ambition:Leeds has helped us to do just that and as a result, we are now opening more doors to employment opportunities across the Retail and Hospitality sector.”
