The success of a team from Itec Cardiff which won the all-Wales final of this year’s Lloyds Banking Group Money for Life challenge has clearly inspired fellow learners!
Lloyds Bank have announced that no fewer than SIX Itec teams have been selected to take their entries forward to the 2014 competition – and have each been awarded a £500 grant by the bank to develop their ideas.
Money for Life is an award-winning personal money management programme. The initiative provides small grants for 16 to 24 year-olds to run a project to improve the knowledge, confidence and skills of communities to help people to manage their money better.
In March next year, teams of learners from Itec centres in Cardiff, Newport, Cwmbran, Caerphilly and Bridgend will be submitting their written report and project summary in the hope of being short-listed to present at the nations finals in Wales.
