Innovation Matters

Innovation is the key to a prosperous future. With this in mind we have partnered with leading organisations to develop unique initiatives across a diverse range of areas including Tech, Design, Art and Entrepreneurship.

All of our initiatives, resources and support are free.

Finance Field Trips

The Finance Field Trip educates students about how a bank works through a tour of their local branch. It is a fun and engaging way for students to get a first taste of banking and a ‘behind the counter’ view of how a bank is run on a day-to-day basis.

Our staff will show students what each part of the branch does to make the branch a more approachable place to visit, answering any questions they may have. Students will also receive a certificate at the end of their visit.

It’s easy to set up a Finance Field Trip for your school in any of our branches – just talk to your local branch.

Points of interest

  • Links with Learning for Life and Work and Mathematics.
  • Being able to tour a bank and see the everyday workings will be very helpful for pupils as it provides actual experience of what they have heard.
