Pupils bank on top money tips
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.”
