Two of our year 12 students Imogen and Jada have successfully been selected to join the Financial Times Advocate Programme representing St Mary’s as one of 250 schools globally.
The programme itself provides the students with work experience where they will complete tasks set by the FT in order to raise awareness of the FT with their peers in order to build financial awareness to young people and to identify how the FT could develop towards being available to young people.
In addition, they will have monthly workshops to build their skillsets helping them prepare for life after school and successful. The opportunity to work with such a prestigious global organisation presents the students a great platform to build their confidence and leadership skills. We are looking forward to seeing the outcome of the experience.
