HSBC ex­tends their stu­dent ac­counts to ap­pren­tices

TES (Times Education Supplement) - - FURTHER -

It’s not just sixth-form col­lege stu­dents who are re­ceiv­ing ad­di­tional fi­nan­cial sup­port. This month, HSBC be­came the first high street bank to make its stu­dent ac­counts avail­able to higher-level ap­pren­tices as well as un­der­grad­u­ates.

Ap­pren­tices study­ing at level 4 or above are en­ti­tled to perks such as a fee- and in­ter­est-free ac­count, a

£60 Ama­zon gift card and dis­counts off restau­rants and travel.

Sue Hus­band, di­rec­tor of the Na­tional Ap­pren­tice­ship Ser­vice, says: “The op­por­tu­ni­ties open to ap­pren­tices are grow­ing – from the sec­tors they can work in to the job roles avail­able. Added ben­e­fits, such as ac­cess to stu­dent ac­counts, makes this route even more ap­peal­ing.”
