As one of the UK’s leaders in our field we’re passionate about helping people with their finances.
So as part of our commitment to the community we’re helping our local school kids and young job seekers get to grips with managing money as part of our next Financial Education for Future Generations day.
Today we’ll be welcoming 30 young people from different schools and youth clubs to take part in the Young Enterprise ‘Learn to Earn’ programme.
As well as giving some pointers on finances we’ll also be helping them understand what it’s like to work in the real world. They’ll have the chance to ask our staff about day to day working life while we give them tips on setting and helping to achieve career goals.
The programme is run by financial education charity Young Enterprise and we’ve enlisted help from our local partners at Thrive Trafford to set up the day. Thrive specialise in making relationships with key partners for the benefit of the local area.
“Our Learn to Earn programme enables students to consider their future aspirations and expectations, whilst learning about the real cost of living and possible career paths. Working with the Group means students can hear directly from industry experts and understand the importance of financial management.”
Suzanne Lockwood, Young Enterprise Area Manager for the North West.
“We’re really excited to be involved in this programme and seeing the benefits that the students involved will gain from it.”
Mark Cottam, CSR Advisor, Community Investment, Thrive Trafford.
