Money Matters - Workshops for Young People

We are the most trusted provider of knowledge, resources and support for anyone involved in teaching young people about money, having supported over 8 million young people to develop their own financial capability over the last 15 years.

We’ll come to your school to teach your students about money!

Our suite of fully interactive workshops have been developed in consultation with young people and teachers, and are delivered by our highly trained staff.

Who are the workshops for?

Individual workshops have been created for each key stage, from KS1 to KS4 and beyond, ensuring that the financial topics covered are age appropriate and relevant. Each workshop has its own theme and is designed to develop core knowledge, skills and attitudes relating to money and money management.
