  • Use and develop their broader personal and social skills

The workshop consisted of

Ice breaker and introduction by each student where we all had to tell each other our name and something interesting about ourselves.

Banking terms and definitions

Banking word search

Quiz – finance questions were asked and each student all had a chance to answer them. Some were about currency used in other countries to maths questions about the change they would receive. There was also fake money they used to work out the answer.

Comments from students who attended:

“Really enjoyed the Barclays morning and enjoyed learning about the different things that I can do with my money”

“My favourite part of the session was doing the worksheets and doing the maths questions”

Most of the students that attended would like to have another session as they felt it was very worthwhile.

Staffs comment:

In my opinion the students had a change in timetable to do something different and to meet professional people that they have not met before. They all conducted themselves in a professional manner.
