A JORDANSTOWN school teacher has received a prestigious award for her commitment to financial education.

Jacqueline McCann took second place in the ‘Teacher Award’ category at the inaugural Ulster Bank Financial Capability Awards, which took place recently in the Great Hall at Queen’s University, Belfast.

Schools, teachers and students from across Northern Ireland were recognised at the awards event, which was organised in association with the Council for the Curriculum, Examinations and Assessments (CCEA).

The awards, which recognise outstanding examples of personal financial education taking place in local schools, build on Ulster Bank’s long-standing commitment to financial education through its flagship MoneySense for Schools programme, the largest financial education programme for post-primary schools in Ireland.
