I'm responsible for media relations at The London Institute of Banking & Finance, so issue press release and produce features about our work.

With all the excitement of National Apprenticeship Week #NAW2020 behind us, how do we change the sometimes narrow thinking around apprenticeships?
Cognitive bias means we often fail to think broadly and clearly about the best options available and so miss out on great opportunities such as degree apprenticeships, says Hema Tank
Apprenticeships are for anyone – young or old – who wants to make a start or change in their career. And they’re a great vehicle for upskilling staff, especially if your organisation is already paying the Apprenticeships Levy.
Financial education in schools should be a standalone subject
Five years after its introduction onto the national curriculum, students still say they are not getting enough access to a comprehensive financial education and that they worry about money.
September saw us hold our annual graduation ceremony – a day of celebration and relief for most students! But what happens next? After graduation, some students get caught up in post-graduation blues and panic about what lies ahead. Until now, their lives have had structured routine. They’ve known where they need to be and what they’re working towards. And they’ve been surrounded by friends who are in the same boat.
October marks the launch of The London Institute of Banking & Finance’s annual Student Investor Challenge which sees tens of thousands of students from schools and colleges around the country compete in teams, trading virtual shares for a chance to compete at the live final in London. In last year’s competition over 37,000 students took part.
