Twenty-two Upper Fifth students have been studying for the London Institute of Banking and Finance’s Level 2 qualification, Award in Financial Education.
This qualification is equivalent to a GCSE and provides an introduction to public finance and the economy, financial management skills and enterprise. The objective of the course is to provide students with the skills and knowledge to manage their money well and make sound financial decisions.
Students take two examinations to achieve the Award, both of which are on-screen testing, enabling results to be accessed immediately after the examination has been taken.
The students have all enjoyed their study and everyone performed well in the examinations, with 18 of the 22 students achieving the top grade of Merit. Some of the students will now be taking an additional written examination in the summer to achieve the Certificate in Financial Education qualification.
Well done girls!
