Students take part in the masterclass

Sale based financial services provider, One Advice Group (OAG) which incorporates Harrington Brooks, kick started its 2017 corporate social responsibility programme in earnest in February, taking part in a packed schedule of events in the local community.

Recently, the One Advice Group provided a masterclass on Financial Education for the college’s Career Ready pupils. Career Ready is a UK wide charity linking employers with schools and colleges to open up the world of work to young people. Students talk about the importance of being financially savvy and are encouraged to discover the careers available to them at the firm when they leave full time education.

Over 55 students took part in the afternoon which included several rounds of the now famous PayDay game (created and produced by OAG colleagues) and a session in which students constructed a budget to live on whilst attending University, taking up work or enrolling on an apprenticeship.

Jodi Hamilton, Head of Marketing at Harrington Brooks commented, “We are delighted that we have kicked off 2017 with the same enthusiasm as colleagues showed throughout 2016. The One Advice Group is very proud of its engagement with businesses and the local community, and has a long history of partnering with schools and organisations to improve the lives of local people.

“Our commitment to schools and college partnerships allows us to get to know pupils, provide them with insight into the world of work and ultimately spot the talented youngsters of tomorrow who will go on to have prominent leadership roles in the local area.”
