My colleague, Christine Marsden our Enterprise Curriculum Development Manager sent me this today...

"Chris, I notice in your blog today there is mention of the Face2Face with Finance programme from the Royal Bank of Scotland and Nat West banks. This tool is part of the toolkit which I promote in my role as Enterprise Curriculum Development Manager in order to develop young peoples’ financial capability. This has been running in Leeds schools for the last 4 years.
We also work in collaboration with pfeg (Personal Finance Education Group) to support schools in writing schemes of work which address these issues. Pfeg consultants are currently working in 12 secondary schools offering 3 free days of consultancy support. They also ran a conference for us at the last but one Enterprise Network Forum in March. The Cashpoints Money Management Business Simulation was one of the programmes which formed part of the Council’s bid for Beacon Status on Financial Inclusion. Christine"

This is another example of the brilliant work that is going on here in Leeds.
