Financial Education for Schools

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, to help develop the financial capability of young people through our MoneySense programme.

MoneySense is a free financial education programme that aims to help 5-18-year-olds in the UK and Republic of Ireland towards a better financial future. It uses the key money moments in a young person’s life – starting to save their pocket money, opening a bank account or getting their first mobile phone – to make learning about money feel relatable.

Any student, parent or 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 activities 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.
