Nationwide recognises that numbers can be a
bit of an obstacle for young people - they're often seen as too difficult, and maybe even a little bit boring.
That's why Nationwide wants to help you in order to help your children understand just how important it is to have a good grasp of numeracy from an early age - so that they can grow up with the essential skills they'll need in later life: maintaining a successful career, managing their hard-earned cash, and buying a house.
Shockingly, research by OECD found that a quarter of adults in England have the maths skills of a 10-year-old, and that 24.1% of the population have such basic levels of numeracy that they can only manage one-step tasks in arithmetic, sorting numbers or reading graphs1. This demonstrates how vital it is for children to learn about numbers.
One of the biggest things numeracy helps us with is money - whether that's understanding it, managing it, making it or saving it - and Nationwide certainly knows a thing or two about that. With its FlexOne current account, young people can learn the true value of money, and start to take responsibility for what they've earned and saved.
So, if your kids are 11-17 years old, they can open up their first bank account and take on that bit of independence before they reach adulthood.
Nationwide also has a whole host of fun, informative money-related content aimed at young people on its Money Stuff Tumblr channel.
WIN! One lucky Mumsnetter will win £250-worth of Love2Shop vouchers, courtesy of Nationwide.
