A highly interactive financial education programme, designed to help set positive money habits and mind-sets from an early age.
Expert-led sessions are complemented by assemblies, teacher resources and homework challenges. MyBnk’s unique and engaging activities teach young people to become informed consumers, savvy savers, and mindful spenders by making finance fun.
- Assembly: Introduction to different money mindsets relating to everyday spending and saving.
- My Money: Earning money and wages, working as a team, testing knowledge and problem solving skills.
- My Choices: Habits and consequences, choices, needs vs wants, understanding money is finite.
- My Future: Setting money goals, reasons to save, understanding how setting positive money habits now will help in the future.
- Money Buzz: Learning about energy consumption and how this impacts both the environment and the cost of living.
Money Twist involves writing, presenting, drawing, maths and problem-solving. We use MyBnk Manga comics, interactive resources and videos, engaging students to remember new knowledge and form their own money opinions. Underpinning behaviour change is the development of executive functions.
Activities cater for a variety of learning styles, with extensions and ability variations. Money Twist is based on Ofsted financial education guidelines and references OECD, PISA and MAS frameworks.
This programme has been independently evaluated as part of the Money Advice Service’s ‘What Works Fund’ – examining the effectiveness of financial education interventions. See full impact here.
