Money Twist involves writing, presenting, drawing, maths and problem- solving. We use real life case studies, colourful resources, games, videos and popular culture, enabling students to explore and form their own opinions regarding their relationship with money.
Underpinning behaviour change is the development of executive functions. The concept of delayed gratification is a main tenet throughout the programme. 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.
