Kilwinning Academy pupils start Credit Union – Ardrossan and Saltcoats Herald

Posted on:

PUPILS at Kilwinning Academy have launched a Credit Union, providing savings and loan facilities to the local community.

The scheme is part of the Innovative Schools Project – a partnership between Developing Young Workforce (DYW) Ayrshire and The Prince’s Trust Scotland.

It encourages school students to get involved in innovative activities which will help them develop employability skills.

The venture was conceived as a response to the closure of high street banks and will allow 1st Alliance Ayrshire Credit Union to have a facility within the school for pupils, their families and local residents to use.
