To make things better, every week the team is taking the most talked-about topics and uploading handy bitesized videos straight to their YouTube channel.

Get inspired with Virgin Money’s Make £5 Grow
Looking for some home-schooling inspiration right now? Our friends over at Virgin Money have adapted their Make £5 Grow programme so children can still learn, even when they’re not in the classroom.
The idea behind Make £5 Grow is really simple. Children are tasked with designing a product or service with lots of flexibility in terms of how they can do this.
You can either work with your children to plan and draft a budget required to bring their creation to life, much like a real life entrepreneur would. Or you can loan your children £5 and help them manage their money to source materials needed to build their business idea.
Not only does the programme give youngsters an insight into how business works and helps them build skills for the future like team working, problem solving, leadership and money management, it’s also designed to ignite their creative spark and build the next generation of budding entrepreneurs.
