Overview

The aim of these resources is to help students to:

- Improve their knowledge and understanding of money function.
- Apply basic financial skills in a variety of relevant contexts.
- Use and develop their broader personal and social skills.
- Think about the financial skills, services and resources they might need in the future.
- Develop the confidence to take financial decisions in a responsible manner by being aware of the effects of decisions they make.

The resources can be used by teachers, volunteers, youth workers and other practitioners who want to use group work to build financial skills, as well as support numeracy and develop life skills.

The resources have been designed to support the delivery of fun, interactive sessions on basic money management topics. They are designed to be informal and interactive using quizzes, games, role plays and discussion, and focus on situations that students will recognise.

The Money Skills Key Stages 1, 2, 3 and 4 Resource packs and the Money Skills toolkit offer a clear and lively set of activities which enable the teacher or volunteer to inspire the students with a variety of relevant challenges about financial circumstances and issues. Easily accessible plans and accompanying downloadable resources allow the session leader to run a series of short lessons or half or whole day workshops. These sessions promote interactive group work based around engaging discussions, quizzes and games. Students are encouraged to consider their aspirations and future lifestyles. They consider the decisions they may have to make in the context of the realistic financial situations provided. All activities have been designed to motivate the appropriate age group.
