CONEL’s Prince’s Trust students get financially savvy
Prince’s Trust students are taking part in an exciting financial programme called Money Works run by My Bnk in association with the Prince’s Trust. My Bnk is a charity that helps young people aged 11 – 25 by teaching them how to manage money. Our students are taking part in four 100 minute sessions that look at budgeting, minimum wage, the role of the Bank of England, and many other areas to get them financially savvy.
On their first session a journalist from Daily Mail Online came to see how well they were learning and to find out more about My Bnk. Students looked at changing bad money habits into good money habits and building a positive relationship with money. Student Ruben Ramos said “I’d like to learn more about money and feedback to my family...the session is good so far”. Declan Wilkes, Head of Communications at My Bnk, said “Our purpose is to give young people skills, knowledge and confidence in managing money, getting into good habits like saving and prioritising spending”. Carol Joseph, Prince’s Trust Team Leader, said “It’s a really useful programme that will benefit our students and also leads to a Level 1 qualification”.
