A free financial education programme aimed at 16-17 year olds in secondary schools
A highly interactive financial education programme covering practical and relevant everyday financial matters.
This session is designed to get young people thinking and caring about their finances, both now and in their short and long-term futures.
Bank account options, reading bank statements, minimum wage, payslips, tax, pensions, needs and wants, budgeting, credit and debt and the benefits of saving.
Young people will look at a range of financial products and understand how to become critical consumers through the cycle of LOOK – DO – REVIEW.
Activities encourage young people to look at options, compare and decide a course of action and keep reviewing to ensure this is the ‘right for choice for them’. Participants are encouraged to give their own views and analyse various financial problems that young people and adults are faced with, as well as considering their own financial futures.
Money Twist is ideal for financial capability days or enrichment weeks. This programme references the UK’s Financial Education Planning Framework for teachers.
The Pathfinder project is funded by the Money and Pensions Service and led by the charity MyBnk.
