Virtual Money Works
A live interactive financial education and digital skills programme for young adults moving into independent living
Young people living on their own, or about to, are often in need of survival money management skills and actions they can implement immediately.
Online and in real-time, these live, secure and expert-led virtual lessons help them directly confront their money worries.
Virtual Money Works has a strong focus on embedding digital skills. By delivering online, we increase young people’s access to and use of digital tools to manage their money. Their increased confidence and new abilities help motivate them to make practical financial decisions and plan for their future.
Other topics cover: finding information, shopping around, accessing financial services, checking credit scores and online banking. Virtual Money Works maps into a range of accredited life skills, money management and employability certificates.
Young people attending the programme can also qualify for a Level 1 Personal Money Management accreditation – and in Scotland an SQA Level 4 Unit Award.
This course is a variation of our face-to-face Money Works programme.
