Students learn money management


Hundreds of North Notts College students have taken part in the Barclays Money Skills week of activities – giving them the opportunity to improve their financial skills.

Barclays and the National Skills Academy for Financial Services have developed the annual programme to help young people stay in control of their budgets and more than 100,000 students nationally have participated in projects relating to aspects of their lives such as food, fashion and independent living.

College principal John Connolly said: “This is a great initiative that encourages students to think about money management at a critical point in their lives as they are planning to go onto university or to get a job.”

“The Money Week was incorporated into our What Next programme, an important part of our citizenship and pastoral care programme which was praised by the Ofsted last year when they graded the college as Good.”
