MyBnk is bringing the UK’s highest rated financial education workshops for young people to Southampton schools!
Nearly 4,000 students will learn how to budget, bank and borrow, understand taxes, tuition fees and employment rights and prepare for independent living.
The three year £196,000 project is in partnership with Old Mutual Wealth, one of the UK’s leading wealth managers.
Our trained and tested Education Officers will be delivering:
The government’s Money Advice Service has given MyBnk’s Money Twist programme for young people the UK’s highest effectiveness rating. After our sessions, we see a 40% increase in students understanding of credit, interest rates and inflation, an 18% rise in positive attitudes towards money and a 25% jump in skills.
Teachers are invited to register their interest now for access to free workshops!
Guy Rigden, MyBnk CEO said:
“We are thrilled to be bringing money to life for young people in Southampton schools. Managing money well opens up new opportunities and helps make informed decisions. When it comes to debt, prevention is always cheaper than the cure and right now, as individuals, we owe £1.45 trillion! Schools, teachers, please get in touch.”
Paul Feeney, CEO, Old Mutual Wealth, said:
“Gaining the skills and confidence to manage finances early in life is critically important. We are delighted to support MyBnk to expand their services in a local community where we are a major employer. Learning how to use credit effectively, tackle debt or make wise spending decisions will help the students to live more prosperous lives.”
