Award winning financial education is delivered to students at The University of Lincoln
Wealth at Work has delivered a brand new series of financial education workshops, specifically for students at The University of Lincoln. The workshops will take place three times a year in order to develop students’ financial knowledge, preparing them for life during and after university.
The students will learn how to manage their loans, how to budget and about the issues involved when renting accommodation. They will also find out about what to expect when in employment in terms of salary and benefits, including pensions.
Jonathan Watts-Lay, director, Wealth at Work, said: “For many students, this will be the first time they are away from home and having to become independent whilst learning how to manage their finances. This exciting new programme will help them develop the best financial habits early on, providing strong foundations for their financial future.”
The University of Lincoln was recently awarded, ‘Best financial education strategy’ at the Employee Benefits Awards, which recognised its approach to financial education as an ‘industry game changer’. It also won the ‘Grand Prix award’ which recognised it as the most outstanding entry among all of the category winners.
Watts-Lay added: “We are proud to be part of such a successful financial education programme. It’s great to see forward thinking organisations like this, taking such a positive step in educating the younger generation with these important life skills.”
