YOUNG ENTERPRISE WELCOME

Why teach financial education?

In this e-brochure you will find a range of programmes and services that complement each of these tiers. It is entirely up to you which you use, and how many you connect together, to help develop your financial education provision.

We could go into the research that highlights the importance of starting to develop money habits by the age of 7, or the fact that young people who feel financially capable have increased happiness and wellbeing in later life. We could even spend a great deal of your time talking about the fact that from now until January 2029 nearly every young person turning 18 will gain access to their Child Trust Fund, estimated to be an average of £1,000, and may not have developed the knowledge, skills or attitudes required to use that money effectively.

We hope you find the contents of this e-brochure helpful in advancing financial education in your school. We are always keen to hear how you and your young people are getting on, so please do let us know via our social media:

@YoungMoneyEdu

But instead of all that, just take a moment to think about the last time you spent a day without paying a thought to money. Not checking your account, making a payment, even just browsing for products (that of course all have a cost). It’s pretty difficult, right? So, if money is something that our young people will have to make decisions about on a daily basis shouldn’t we be preparing all of them for that future?

Click here for an Introduction to our programmes from our Director of Programme & Services: Russell Winnard

How can we help? There are no two young people that are exactly the same. We understand that you know the young people you work with the best so should be ones to decide how to engage them. Because of this we have developed programmes and services that provide three tiers of support:

1

In-school programmes

2

Professional development opportunities

3

High quality tools and resources

If there’s anything more you’d like to know, you can always get in touch with our Advisory Service – real human beings with an expert knowledge of financial education ready to answer your questions (no matter how big or small).

A FINANCIAL EDUCATION TEXTBOOK

ENGLAND

FINANCIAL EDUCATION TEXTBOOK Back in 2018 we delivered 100 copies of the Your Money Matters textbook into all English state-funded secondary schools, and later this year free copies of a nation specific version of the textbook will also arrive in all secondary schools in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

LESSON PLANS We know how much time it can take to develop an effective, engaging programme of financial education. That’s why we’ve developed a set of over 80 primary and secondary ready-toteach lesson plans complete with activity sheets and PowerPoint slides. Our financial education lesson plans will allow you to build your own bespoke scheme of work in minutes. The lesson plans are mapped to the Primary and Secondary Planning Frameworks and will allow you to cover a range of financial topics relevant to your pupils; you could even use them to build a whole scheme of work.

YOUNG ENTERPRISE TEACHER SUPPORT

Financial Education Quality Mark All Quality Mark resources are mapped against one or more core areas of the relevant Financial Education Planning Framework. The Frameworks support the planning, teaching and progression of financial education by setting out the key areas of financial knowledge, skills and attitudes relevant to children and young people. You can find all of the current Quality Mark resources and the Financial Education Planning Frameworks on the YE Resource Hub. There are a wide range of resources which can be used by educators in formal and non-formal settings, by parents and carers, and by young people themselves.

Updated digital version of YMM You’ll appreciate there is certain financial information that changes quite frequently, and because of this we have updated the digital version of Your Money Matters to ensure it is fully up to date. These are only relatively minor amendments, but it means you can now see the very latest personal allowance figures, or what the latest tax bands are. Alongside the update, we have also developed a PowerPoint version of the Your Money Matter textbook that enables you to cut and paste activities, questions, and ‘Did You Know’ facts. Hopefully this provides a greater level of flexibility of the Your Money Matters textbook and enables even more creative uses!

Benefits of joining: • Handpicked lesson plans created by our team of experts • Ready to teach lesson plans for every year of education, from Key Stage 1 – 5
