Financial Education

Financial literacy and enterprise education will be critical to drive cultural change in the way young people manage money and engage with entrepreneurship. Today’s teenagers are tomorrow’s adults.

Their ability to lead financially healthy lives and to be employable – whether as employees or as employers providing jobs for others – deserves positive and proactive support.

That’s why we invest forward, working at community level in schools across Ireland, to help develop the financial capability of young people through our MoneySense programme.

MoneySense is Ireland’s largest financial education programme, providing a range of online, interactive learning resources for teachers and students.

Any school is free to use these resources, with content tailored to meet the needs of students from the age of 5 to 18.Through teaching an understanding of money, debt, credit, earning and saving, we can give the next generation the ability to make their own financial decisions, leading to greater choice and freedom in adult life.

Modules include interactive activites and exercises to bring learning to life. Teachers can use the MoneySense resources themselves or ask us to visit their school and support them in delivering a MoneySense session.

There are also resources available for parents and carers to enable them to support their children in learning about money.

MoneySense has won a number of Corporate Social Responsibility awards in recent years:

  • Best Community Volunteering Programme Chambers Ireland 2015
  • UTV Business Eye, Business Education Award 2014
  • Business in the Community Northern Ireland Highly Commended Education Partner Award 2013
  • Chambers Ireland Community Award 2012
  • Irish Sponsorhip Best Grassroots Community Sponsorship Award, 2012
