RNZ - DINE Academy RadioNZ interview with Mike Kirk

 

Dine Academy gives school kids interested in cooking a chance to try catering for big events - and get paid while they're doing it. Mike Kirk helped set up Dine Academy a couple of years ago and so far it's had 300 participants - 80 percent of whom got a job offer at the end of the programme.
