A DEAL has been struck by the Museum of London Docklands with major American financiers.

The museum in London's Canary Wharf has set up a partnership with Citi financial services group to fund a programme helping youngsters understand finance.

The year-long scheme invites schools in East London to make use of a free learning day and online resources being created to go live online next spring.

The learning day includes an enterprise 'challenge' to plan and cost a corporate event to be held at the museum.

Pupils get to meet a character actor playing the son of an East End docker who became a millionaire and learn about his plight as a speculator in the 1980s. They also have a tour of the nearby Citi office at Canary Wharf where they can talk to staff and learn about and their roles.
