Secondary Schools Programme

  • School Bank

    The Bank of Ireland School Bank has been designed to support schools in providing financial education to students.

    It gives students the opportunity to work in the School Bank branch across a variety of roles from Bank Manager to Sales and Marketing Manager, learning about banking and how to work as an effective team.

    The School Bank also provides the opportunity for students to open a bank account and makes it easy for them to save on a regular basis, via frequent onsite School Bank visits.

    The Student School Bank team will be supported by experienced Bank of Ireland staff members from the local branch to ensure the smooth operation of the School Bank and to support the team with any questions and queries they may have.


    In recognition of the work that schools and students put into running a School Bank, we offer the following incentives:

    For the School:
    For every 25 accounts opened, a cash incentive applies as per the table below. This can be spent as the school sees fit.

  • TY Academy

    We have developed a transition year academy, which offers students the opportunity to acquire new skills which can help them prepare for the adult world of work.

    The TY Academy enables students to work on a business problem alongside students from other schools. Over the course of three days, they explore entrepreneurship, innovation, communication skills, teamwork and learn how to pitch their proposals in a “Dragons’ Den” environment.

  • In class presentations

    We have a wide range of presentations available to educate and inform your students about banking and managing their money.
