Tralee Schools Urged To Enter AIB Build A Bank Challenge

Posted by


TRALEE and Kerry students are encouraged to enter this year’s AIB Build A Bank Challenge.

Kerry has enjoyed strong representation in recent years, with Presentation Tralee doing especially well winning the overall award two years ago.

There’s €5,000 up for grabs as over 100 schools from across Ireland are expected to take part this year. Over 18,000 of students have taken part in the programme since it was founded in 2002.

The programme, which is open to transition and fifth year students gives students the opportunity to showcase their creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship by tasking them with setting up and managing their own bank.

In March, teams of students across the country will be invited to compete in the national final at the RDS, Dublin where they will be in with a chance of winning €5,000 for their schools and be crowned AIB Build A Bank Champions.

Over the course of the programme students taking part will get involved in all aspects of business from marketing and branding to developing a business plan – all of which all links back to the business studies curriculum.

Throughout the programme they will also be fully supported by a dedicated local AIB Student Officer who will guide them through the Build A Bank programme and help them develop much needed skills which will be beneficial to them in the future.
