Our work – Virtual Financial Education – Schools

Providing a range of expert-led virtual financial education workshops for 7-11 year olds in UK schools – Ideal for PSHE, Citizenship, Maths, and Business students

Our expert-led school age programmes aim to build financial capability at key transitional moments, addressing mindsets, attitudes and behaviours to help young people form an understanding of the wider world of money.

Our financial education workshops help form positive habits like saving and delayed gratification, connect the dots between public and personal finance and arm young people with practical money skills. This teaches them how to navigate the system and make informed decisions. Topics range from budgeting, banking and borrowing to student finance, tax and pensions.

See our Impact section and case studies for evidence on the powerful effect of our school programmes and how we map to the National Curriculum. We also provide a range of programmes for young adults outside of mainstream education and several home learning products.
