MSP sets out money task

Graeme Dey MSP for Angus South is encouraging education and training organisations to take the Bank of Scotland’s Money for Life Challenge.

It seeks to find the most successful and innovative projects that young people can use to improve their money management skills, and those of their friends, families and communities.

Teams of up to ten young people in further education, work-based learning, adult community learning or a training organisation can apply for a £500 grant to enter, with the support of an individual project sponsor from their learning provider.

Mr Dey said: “With financial education becoming part of the national curriculum from next September, I’d like to see at least one education or community organisation in my constituency take part in the Money for Life Challenge.”
