One of our local councillors sent me this...

"Hello Chris, I thought the attached may be of interest to you.

The Royal Bank of Scotland run a programme called Face2Face with Finance, which is free of charge to Schools. I thought that it might be of interest to those of use who work with the High Schools in our wards. The Face2Face with Finance Scheme is aimed at 11 to 18 year olds and introduces them to financial literacy via a paper format and web based training package. It can involve running an enterprise day in school and the Royal Bank makes no charge for delivering this service. Both RBS and Natwest have a dedicated website for Face2Face with Finance, these can be found at the following links and

Face2Face with Finance for Schools is a programme from RBS that aims to support young people in learning how to manage their personal finances. The programme is provided to teachers free of charge. Regards Cllr Terry Grashon"

Financial literacy is a hugely important aspect of the provision we should be making for young people here in Leeds and this looks very interesting. If you are interested in learning more about Face2Face with finance contact Margaret Hudson at the Royal Bank of Scotland who will be pleased to answer any questions you may have.
