Thousands of young people in Wales will be getting lesssons on how to look after their money. 'My Money Week' comes as leading finance experts warn that youngsters need better training if they are to look after their cash properly as they grow up.
Schoolchildren across Wales are to be given lessons about money and personal finance.
The charity behind the programme says it is aiming to create a society in which all children and young people have the skills, knowledge and confidence to manage their money.
Launched today at Cowbridge Comprehensive in the Vale of Glamorgan, 'My Money Week' is a new partnership between financial education charity PFEG (Personal Finance Education Group) and Barclays bank.
The school is one of 150 organisations that have signed up to participate.
