Want to learn about how banks work and the financial services they offer, or understand how interest can impact our finances and how external factors can impact our money?

The Santander MoneyWise programme aims to help you understand money and the principles of good money management, to equip you with the skills you need to manage your money with confidence.

This workshop looks at banks as businesses. You will have the opportunities to consider banking in a digital world, the types of services banks offer and making choices about the services that are important to you.

You will explore how banks make money and the impact the economy can have on your own personal finances, as well as consider some of the problems that both banks and customers face today.

Join us for an interactive session with a Santander employee for a discussion on the role of banks.

This is a one hour session.

This session is run via Zoom. Speakers for Schools will be in touch with all successful applicants with instructions on how to join the session. For any queries, please email
