Metro Bank colleagues from the Ealing store have delivered Money Zone – financial education workshops – to 15 special needs students aged between 16 and 17. The aim of the complimentary workshop is to raise financial awareness in students.
Money Zone is a series of financial education lessons that Metro Bank offers - either virtually or in store. Money Zone comprises of four sessions - budgeting, saving, banking and the last session which takes place in store gives the students a behind the scenes look at the Bank including a visit to the vault and the chance to try the coin counting Magic Money Machine. Metro Bank has delivered its Money Zone programme at over 2,500 schools and 250,000 students.
Ealing Metro Bank colleagues Kamran Beglane and Jasleen Kaur hosted the Money Zone event. “As a community bank, we are committed to our free financial education programme,” explained Ealing Metro Bank Assistant Store Manager, Kamran Beglane. “Jasleen and I took the students through the store and answered their questions about the different types of bank accounts as well as how to use the ATM and the Magic Money Machine.”
Organised by Business Education Events, the visit was a success and the students’ appreciation was feedback with some lovely comments: “Thank you. What a wonderful session you created for our young special needs students! We take our young people to visit a wide variety of businesses, but today’s experience was exceptional. The students learnt so much from you, and the goodie bag at the end was a lovely touch.”
