Ten steps to boost financial education

Written by: Pete Henshaw | Published:

Guidance for schools has set out 10 steps to boost the delivery of financial education.

Published by the Money and Pensions Service with support from the Department for Education, the resource aims to help schools encourage conversation about money in the classroom and highlights the links between financial education and the existing curriculum.

Suggestions include introducing a financial education lead, putting in place targeted support for children with additional needs, consulting parents and students, and approaches to embedding learning about money throughout school life.

The guidance also points to financial education services and resources to help schools, including those targeted at children with SEND.

The guidance forms part of a broad programme to expand financial wellbeing provision in schools across the UK as part of the UK Strategy for Financial Wellbeing goal of two million more children and young people receiving a meaningful financial education by 2030.

Elsewhere, the Financial Education Quality Mark is delivered by Young Money – part of Young Enterprise – and helps teachers find quality assured resources to teach children and young people about money.
