Economic Well-being

At Brent River College we encourage our students to achieve in their learning and help them to lay the platform to begin to understand the lifelong benefits of learning and making a positive contribution in their communities.

Economic well-being is defined as having present and future financial security. Present financial security includes the ability of individuals, families, and communities to consistently meet their basic needs and have control over their day-to-day finances. It also includes the ability to make economic choices and feel a sense of security, satisfaction, and personal fulfilment with one’s personal finances and employment pursuits. Future financial security includes the ability to absorb financial shocks, meet financial goals, build financial assets, and maintain adequate income throughout their life-span.

We prepare our students for the next stage of education, employment or training. Where relevant, they gain qualifications that allow them to go on to destinations that meet their interests, aspirations and the intention of their course of study.

At Brent River College, we strive to ensure that all our students achieve economic well-being and through PSHE lessons, mentoring, Citizenship lessons, Career advice and Money Management that ensure our students build a safe and secure financial knowledge and skill. This guides and support our students to access safe, affordable financial products and economic resources.
