Business Education Makes Sense of Money

Categories: School News














The Royal Bank of Scotland has released the results of its fifth year of research into young people’s attitudes to money and the results show that 90% of young people believe it’s important to learn about managing money.


The Business Education department in St Ninian’s delivers lessons on personal and business finance as part of their S1 and S2 Business Enterprise and Finance course. The department was recently visited by a film crew from RBS who were keen to talk to some of our young people about the finance lessons they had taken part in and to find out how these lessons had impacted on their knowledge of personal and business finance.  You might be surprised to know that the survey showed that on average Scottish children believe they will earn £53,600 per year by the time they are aged 35.

You can see the results of the filming above.
