In recent months we have been invited to help teachers at Aldridge School add an extra real-world dimension to their classes. Late in 2019 Financial Adviser, David Jones and our Business Development Manager, Simon Trevelyan gave a presentation to students on careers in finance and banking. In early-January David was invited to speak to the Core Maths students.
Maths Teacher & Careers Leader, Vicky Hughes was coming to the end of the Core Maths Finance Module. She asked her students to create a list of questions to ask David. These ranged from “Can you have a financial adviser before the age of 18?” to “Do you know the proportion of people who don’t have enough money to afford a ‘normal’ lifestyle and are not in debt?”
There were 20 questions overall and David had to do some research in order to be prepared for this bright group of youngsters, some of whom have their sights set on Oxbridge. David said, “I was impressed with the quality of the questions, and also the attentiveness of the students during the session.”
Our team of qualified Financial Advisers give financial advice local to Sutton Coldfield and across the area. As a team we take great pride in serving our local community and are delighted to be asked to work with Aldridge School. We have already agreed to support them again by taking part in their Careers Fair in the Spring.
