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 an assembly, teacher resources and family challenges. These 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 related to the consequences of everyday spending and saving.
- My Money: Awareness of money habits, delayed gratification and looking at strategies to resist temptation when spending.
- My Choices: Prioritising needs and wants, the cost of living and exploring how to manage your money through budgeting.
- My Future: The benefits of saving, understanding interest as both a reward for saving and a charge for borrowing. Looking at different financial risks and setting a future finance goal.
Money Twist involves writing, presenting, drawing, maths and problem-solving. We use 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.
Money Twist has been evaluated and proven by The Money Advice Service’s Evidence Hub.
