What's on offer?
We are offering state schools in the UK a one hour visit from a member of our staff. Staff have volunteered to talk to your students - and answer their questions - about what the Bank of England does and how the economy works.
There is no charge for the visit.
We want to help you to bring these topics to life and maybe inspire your students to consider a career in central banking or finance.
You can choose from four types of visits:
What does the Bank of England do?An explanation of what the Bank of England does – for example, how it’s different from a high street bank. The speaker can also talk to students about their own career at the Bank. For students aged 11 to 18.
Economics in practiceA talk on what the Bank of England does that’s focused on the Economics A’ Level syllabus. It includes an option for in-depth information about a related subject of your choice. For students aged 16 to 18.
EconoME workshopA class-based session to help you deliver Lesson 1 of our new educational resource – EconoME. This session will introduce economics in an engaging and interactive way. For students aged 11 to 16.
Technology at the Bank of EnglandA session explaining the role of the Bank and how technology is vital to the critical systems that support the Bank's key functions. For students aged 11 to 18.
