About My Money Week
The ninth annual My Money Week will take place from 12 - 18 June 2017, thanks to generous support from Martin Lewis OBE.
Since 2009, we have provided schools across the country with free resources, lesson plans, Activity Packs, competitions, national challenges, one to one consultancy support and a dedicated website for the highest profile and most recognised financial education initiative – My Money Week.
The response from schools, teachers and young people in the first and following years was phenomenal - the demand for resources, engagement and interest outstripped all expectations and the variety of activities and events that took place was amazing!
As with all of our initiatives, the Week is designed to be flexible and adaptable so that activities can be changed to meet the needs of individual schools. Hundreds of thousands of young people get involved in the run up to, and during the Week.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is it?
My Money Week is a national activity week for primary and secondary schools that provides a fantastic opportunity for young people to gain the skills, knowledge and confidence in money matters to thrive in our society.
How do we get involved?
The 2017 resources can be downloaded in the Resources and Activities section of this microsite and are comprised of newspaper style articles covering money topics that will engage and enthuse your young people, with comprehensive teachers' notes offering ideas about how to use and extend the content! You can also still access the My Money Week 2016 materials and the 2015 My Money Week Planners which offer a range of ideas and activities that can be delivered in standalone sessions, or as part of a whole Week of activities. Many of the resources from previous Week's also remain available to order or download and they are flexible and adaptable to be used in a way that meets your needs.
Can we only take part on those dates?
The dates are intended to highlight the great financial education activities and lessons that so many schools take part in throughout the year; however we know you might need to move the dates slightly to fit it in within your academic calendar.
Do we have to do a whole week of activities?
While it’s fantastic to hear that some schools are able to run an entire week of financial education activities, it is of course not always possible. We encourage schools to take part in anyway that meets their needs; this may be by delivering a lesson on money management, using the resources in tutor time, scaling to a series of lessons or a whole school event.
