Money Twist involves writing, presenting, drawing, maths and problem- solving. We use MyBnk Manga comics, interactive resources and videos, engaging students to remember new knowledge and form their own money opinions. Underpinning behaviour change is the development of executive functions. Activities cater for a variety of learning styles, with extensions and ability variations.
Money Twist is based on Ofsted financial education guidelines and references OECD PISA and MAS frameworks. Multiple workshops can be run simultaneously to allow several classes to take part at once.
This programme is part of the Money Advice Service’s What Works Fund – examining the effectiveness of financial education interventions.
