Students at The Farnley Academy have benefited from sessions based on the world of finance thanks to the Leeds United Foundation Secondary Education team.
The hour-long workshops were delivered free of charge and Farnley Academy students looked at handling finances and understanding credit scores to help prepare them for their future.
Each workshop is delivered with the support of TransUnion to help give students a better understanding of dealing with finances as the topic can often be a minefield.
The club’s official charity received positive feedback from The Farnley Academy with the school working hard to support their students with life skills that aren’t always covered during their other lessons. The Academy said in a statement:
“Many of our Year 10 maths students took part in a workshop during their maths lessons provided by the Leeds United Foundation in partnership with their sponsors, TransUnion.
“This was such a valuable workshop about understanding credit and finance where students were posed with many questions, educating them on the impact their credit file and score will have on them in the future.”
The sessions involve presentations around credit reports, credit scores, and handling finances with the chance for questions from pupils that will help prepare them for the world of work.
