Three highly interactive sessions building young people’s knowledge around basic finance and helping them engage with money:

  • My Money: History and functions of money, security features of notes, currency and exchange rates.
  • My Choices: Budgeting, youth employment, minimum wage, needs and wants, shopping deals, risk and saving.
  • My Future: Interest, current and savings accounts, ethical banking, flow of money, consumer choice and future of money.

See how this programme maps into the National Curriculum.

An award-winning programme, Money Twist involves writing, presenting, drawing, maths and problem-solving. We use real life case studies, colourful resources, games and videos and popular culture, enabling students to explore and form their own opinions regarding their relationship with money. Activities cater for a variety of learning styles, with many extensions and ability variations.

Money Twist is based on Ofsted financial education guidelines and references OECD PISA and MAS frameworks. The content maps into the financial literacy parts of the new Citizenship and Maths curriculum, PSHEE and touches on other subject areas such as English and Geography. It is ideal for financial capability focus days, enterprise weeks, or can be built into a scheme of work over a number of weeks.

Multiple Money Twist workshops can be run simultaneously to allow several classes to take part at once.

Money Twist has been evaluated and proven by The Money Advice Service’s Evidence Hub. This programme also won Children & Young People Now’s Financial Capability Award 2010!
