Save By The Bell

Save by the Bell (SBTB) is a school-based project which aims to provide financial education to pupils and to complement financial inclusion initiatives within the City of Dundee. We aim to encourage children and young people to develop a regular savings habit which can be sustained during their adult life.

Current opportunities

The business of Save by the Bell is managed by the Management Committee who set priorities in the use of staff and other resources. An opportunity exists for interested individuals to join the Management Committee and assist in the management of Save by the Bell. Management Committee members will be expected to attend Committee meetings to discuss issues affecting Save by the Bell staff, funding and business with other Management Committee members and to participate in any decisions required.

Save By The Bell is a project that encourages children and young people to develop a savings habit. We run weekly collections in participating primary schools across Dundee, where pupils can deposit money into their savings account. Our trained primary 6/7 pupils act as 'tellers' and are supervised by adult volunteers. We need more adult volunteers to support and monitor our pupils during these collections, helping them to develop their cash handling and numeracy skills. There are positions available in various schools and collections usually last no more than one hour. All volunteers will be required to commit to attending one collection per week and to undergo a Disclosure Scotland check. Support and training will be provided by Save By The Bell staff.
