Content

Sporty Money Twist is an innovative blend of active games and discussion that communicates key financial messages in a fun and effective way.

The session gives young people the opportunity to ‘play’ with financial education, which in turn brings money to life and strengthens learning.

Sessions cover:

  • My Money: Sources of income, minimum wage, careers, payslips, tax, national insurance, auto enrolment and government income & expenditure.

Sporty Money Twist approaches financial capability in a hands-on manner as young people play games and work together to understand and address key topics like public finance. The key elements of fun, friendly competition and detailed content allow participants to discuss and share their views in an engaging and comfortable environment.

The programme is designed to get young people thinking and caring about their finances, both now and in their short and long-term futures. Participants are given the opportunity to learn and change their behaviour through activities that cater for all levels of ability.

Sporty Money Twist can be delivered on a playing area outside or in a large indoor hall.

Our own research has shown that combining physical activity with financial education can sometimes be more effective than traditional classroom based lessons.
