Postbank joins the European Money Week

24.03.2017

Postbank’s experts will participate in the European Money Week which will take place from 27 to 31 March 2017. The joint initiative is organized by the European Banking Federation, the Association of Banks in Bulgaria and other national bank associations, and aims to improve the financial literacy of pupils and students in European primary and secondary schools.

Within the framework of the European Money Week 2017, Postbank’s team will hold open lessons and trainings for children from different cities across the country. The bank’s regional managers will hold open lessons to improve the financial literacy of the 8th-graders of Professional Trade High School in Bourgas and Geo Milev English Language High School in Rousse.

At Postbank’s initiative, 10th-graders from the American College in Sofia will attend a half-day training in the bank’s main office, which will take place according to a programme designed for them. It includes a series of meetings with representatives of five units of the Corporate Banking department and a training provided by the Corporate Communications and Marketing department.

During the European Money Week, the bank’s experts will mentor 10th-and 11th-graders from the National Trade and Banking High School in Sofia and will help them create their own ‘school banks’ and prepare for a competition.

3rd-graders from Frédéric Joliot-Curie 23rd High School in Sofia will visit the bank’s main office to see how a bank works, what the modern banking methods are and what choosing to work as a banker involves.

Postbank’s team believes that young people’s finance knowledge is of utmost importance for the entire society, so it has also designed specially developed training materials on financial literacy, adjusted to young people’s level. They will be used to clarify the goals of the European Money Week, to explain banks’ activities and products, the origin of money, saving methods, investments and personal budget management.

The bank’s mission is to be an active participant in the processes the Bulgarian community is going thorough and, as a leading financial institution, to support projects in some of the main spheres of public life such as education, culture, sport and environmental protection.
