Today (28 May), almost 40 MPs and Peers signed a joint statement calling for financial education for every primary aged child across the UK, so that they leave the education system and transition into adult life with the knowledge, confidence and skills to manage their money well. This should be funded by unclaimed assets set to be released from the financial services sector by the Dormant Assets Bill. This bid for funding comes as financial education charities express deep concerns regarding speculation that there will be significant cuts to the funding allocated to financial education in the Money and Pensions Service’s (MaPS) upcoming budget.

One of the key decisions for anyone considering university is whether to opt for an academic or vocational degree. This is easier if you know what you want to do with your life – say, heart surgery or investment banking – or if you have a passion for a specialist subject like Anglo-Saxon poetry. However, vocational degrees offer another distinct advantage – one that needs to be factored into any decision: they prepare students for the world of work.
