Financial Education in Schools
From September 2014, maintained schools in England must teach financial education as part of the national curriculum. Many young people enter adult life with very little financial knowledge which can lead them into serious financial difficulty. Money Management must be learned and practiced and teaching these skills in school better prepares the younger generation for ‘real life’.
The move towards an increasingly cashless society and more financial products and services than ever before, is making it harder for young people to navigate their personal finances. Our dedicated Financial Education division here at Talk Moneywise produce and publish commended “Money Management Programmes” aimed at Key Stages 3 and 4 and is adaptable to teach across all Year Groups from 7 to 12. We also provide “Money Management Programmes” for Key Stage 2 which introduceS the concept of money and savings. Furthermore, we also supply topical learning material on pension planning, borrowing, savings/investments, and Will planning within Sixth Form and Universities.
Our programmes are produced by qualified financial advisors to help teach students about key areas of finance to equip them with the skills, knowledge and the confidence to manage their money well. Materials are regularly updated to meet changing legislation and ensure students grow to understand their attitude to risk, becoming aware of their own behavior and emotions when making financial decisions. Material includes prepared comprehensive lesson plans for the Teaching Staff together with Answer Sheets. Colourful Worksheets are provided for students which comprise of interactive quizzes with multiple choice and open forum discussion exercises.
We provide on site teacher support prior to rolling out the sessions and additional one to one support for teaching staff is available if required. Our most recent book, “Get Wise Talk Moneywise” acts as a guide to managing your money more effectively. It educates the reader to be more mindful of identifying your current finances through budgeting, sensible spending, savings and future planning.
