A highly interactive financial education programme covering practical and relevant everyday financial matters.
These sessions are designed to get young people thinking and caring about their finances, both now and in their short and long-term futures.
- Session 1: Minimum wage, payslips, national insurance, tax, government spending, household costs, insurance, needs and wants, lifestyle choices, budgeting, unexpected costs, and savings.
- Session 2: Pensions, auto enrolment, investments, stocks and shares/cash ISAs, risk and saving, Interest, borrowing, credit and debt, and fraud and scams.
Money Twist approaches financial capability in a hands-on manner as young people play games and and physical activity in their learning. Each session is structured to look at where young people get money, what they do with it and why it matters.
Participants are encouraged to give their own views and critically analyse various financial problems that young people and adults are faced with, as well as considering their own financial futures.
Money Twist maps into the financial literacy elements of the Citizenship, Maths and PSHE curriculum. It is ideal for financial capability focus days, enterprise weeks, or can be built into a scheme of work over a number of weeks. Multiple Money Twist sessions can be run simultaneously to allow several classes to take part at once.
Money Twist has been evaluated and proven by The Money Advice Service’s Evidence Hub. This programme also won Children & Young People Now’s Financial Capability Award 2010!
