Financial Literacy: aged 13-18

Our Financial Literacy Skills Curriculum aims to ensure pupils have a broad understanding of essential financial terms, products and services so they can make informed and effective decisions with their financial resources, but also ensuring the foundational financial knowledge and skills expected in most jobs. The sessions also develop multiple employability skills.

Sessions are between 45minutes-1hour long.

We have also created some additional guidance for parents/carers on using the toolkit resources at home.

This session helps pupils to navigate pay slips and understand tax and national insurance. It also explores and explains key terminology such as pensions and interest rates.

Lesson 2: Managing Your Budget

This session helps students understand what a budget is and why budgeting is important. It highlights the importance of deciphering between wants, needs and savings.

Lesson 3: Insurance

Lesson 4: Planning for the Future
