Have you ever wondered what your first playslip will include?

We are delighted to offer this moving on from school workshop where we will talk you through your first payslip, help you understand key terms and take questions about your first job.

Following this workshop, students will:

  • Understand the key features of a payslip
  • Explain different types of income deductions

This is great for young people who want to understand more about their own personal finance to make informed decisions when they reach age 18.

Students will also get the opportunity to speak with a personal finance professional about their career path and seek advice and support on careers in the industry as part of the session.
