Kilwinning Academy Pupils Form their Own Credit Union

That the Parliament congratulates the pupils of Kilwinning Academy on forming a new credit union in partnership with 1st Alliance Ayrshire Credit Union; recognises that the pupils’ venture was created as a response to the closure of the town’s high street banks and will allow a credit union to be set up as a facility in the school for pupils, staff and local residents; notes that the credit union was created through the Innovative Schools Project, a partnership between Developing Young Workforce Ayrshire and the Prince’s Trust Scotland, with the new credit union at Kilwinning Academy being its 60th funded partnership project; further notes that these projects encourage pupils to get involved in entrepreneurial activities to develop employability skills, such as communication, commitment and customer service; recognises the value of the credit union and the wider projects that aided in its creation, as well as the positive impact that it will have on the local area, and wishes the pupils at Kilwinning Academy the very best in the future.
