Financial education resources available for home schooling
Posted on 9th April 2020
The Building Society Association and Young Money, the financial education charity which is part of Young Enterprise, have launched a set of financial education materials for children, parents and carers to use while schools are closed during the coronavirus outbreak.
The initial set of resources includes exercises for primary and secondary school pupils to help them learn about needs and wants, making choices and planning ahead.
Young Money and the BSA have been working together for a number of years. In 2019 Young Money developed resources for building societies to use in local schools, aligned to Key Stages 1 to 4 of the curriculum, working in partnership with teachers.
These activities have been revised to be delivered at home – either with parental support for younger children, or via self-teaching for older pupils. The exercises include full guidance on how to deliver engaging and relevant money activities in the home, as we start a new school term.
More sets of materials will be added soon. You can download the education material here.
