Enter the RBS Personal Finance Education Awards 2010

Monday 22nd March 2010

This academic year, The Royal Bank of Scotland Group in association with pfeg (Personal Finance Education Group) are looking for examples of excellence in personal finance education (PFE). Teachers and students in primary and secondary schools and colleges in England, Wales and Scotland can enter.

As in previous years there are three awards for schools and teachers, the first for the best all-round approach to PFE, the second for the most innovative approach and the third a teachers award for being the driving force behind a successful programme.  The winning school in each category will win £1,500 with the individual winning a laptop and there is a runners up prize of £500 for the school and an ipod shuffle for the individual.

New this year is the introduction of a student category, allowing teachers to nominate a student or group of students for their contribution to PFE. The students will need to show how they have built on the original PFE lessons or project and developed their knowledge and ideas further to benefit their own school or other young people in the local community. Teachers are invited to make the nomination and then it is up to the students to complete their own entry form. The winning school in this category will also win £1,500 with a runners up prize of £500 and in both cases there are exciting prizes for the students involved.

The awards are also open to primary schools for the first time this year, with similar prizes on offer. Judges are looking for schools and teachers who have raised the profile of teaching money matters in their primary school. If your primary school has an exciting and engaging approach to teaching pupils about money, its value and uses there is a simple online entry form to complete about your programme.

The deadline for entries is Friday, 23rd April 2010 for 11-18s, and Friday, 30th April 2010 for the Primary Award.

Entering is straightforward, and details of how to do it are set out on the RBS Personal Finance Education Awards website. The excellent website also has case studies so you can read about past winners and find great teaching ideas.
