Pupils bank on top money tips

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

SCHOOL­CHILD­REN re­ceived vis­its from the part­ners of a na­tion­wide bank as part of an em­ploy­a­bil­ity skills day.

Katie Watts, from the Great Mis­senden branch of TSB, and Danielle Med, from the Princes Ris­bor­ough branch, vis­ited the Chal­fonts Com­mu­nity Col­lege, Nar­cot Lane, Chal­font St Peter, on July 15.

TSB say this work will en­able the col­lege to en­cour­age their stu­dents to­wards all avail­able op­tions as they choose their fu­ture paths. The part­ners also gave the stu­dents ad­vice on bank­ing, bud­get­ing and fi­nance.

Katie Watts said: “It’s bril­liant to know that the time Danielle and I spent with the Chal­fonts Com­mu­nity Col­lege will help to con­tinue to of­fer op­tions and ad­vice to its stu­dents.

“The Chal­fonts Com­mu­nity Col­lege has done a lot of work al­ready to fur­ther their stu­dents’ am­bi­tions and we were more than happy to help.

“Learn­ing to bud­get has be­come more im­por­tant than ever, so this was a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity to ed­u­cate the younger gen­er­a­tion.”

Chris­tine San­ders, head of em­ploy­a­bil­ity at the col­lege said: “It’s re­ally im­por­tant young peo­ple learn how to han­dle money, but also to see how two women have pro­gressed via very dif­fer­ent routes to work­ing in fi­nance and be­ing fan­tas­tic role mod­els.”
