The FinTech for Schools Experience
Joe Roche / 13th November 2020
FinTech North is delighted to share an announcement from Innovate Finance, the UK’s representative body for FinTech and the coordinators of the FinTech National Network
Innovate Finance is proud to launch our revamped FinTech for Schools experience. Supporting talent and skills in FinTech is one of our key priorities and we recognise it is one of the biggest issues for our community. So this is why we created FinTech for Schools, to promote awareness of FinTech in young people: What sort of careers are on offer? What is FinTech anyway and what does it stand for? How do you use it in your everyday life?
We want to give young people across the UK the opportunity to access information in multiple ways so that they can learn how to manage their finances better, consider FinTech as a career choice or gain work experience and insights. Most importantly, we want to encourage the broadest talent at an early age from a diverse range of backgrounds.
The new-look FinTech for Schools comprises three main elements:
a mobile web app – developed with our partner Deloitte.
virtual work experience – in conjunction with Innovate Finance partner Speakers
- masterclasses – short, snappy videos from our members offering their expertise to explain, in plain English, a specific vertical in FinTech, or a job role etc.
Take a look at our short video for a 2 minute overview of the initiative.
Please share #FinTechForSchools with your networks so it reaches as many young people as possible!
