Money Twist workshops cover practical and relevant everyday financial matters.
Each of the sessions focuses on different topic areas:
- My Money: Tax, payslips, national insurance, government spending, minimum wage, auto enrolment pensions and careers.
- My Choices: Needs and wants, lifestyle choices, budgeting, household costs, insurance, pensions, investments, risk and saving.
- My Future: Interest, banking terms, current and savings accounts, flow of money, consumer choice, forms of payment, borrowing, credit and debt.
Money Twist approaches financial capability in a hands-on manner as young people debate, play games, watch video case studies, and involve physical activity in their learning. Participants are encouraged to give their own views and critically analyse various financial problems that young people and adults are faced with, as well as considering their own financial futures.
The workshops are designed to get young people thinking and caring about their finances, both now and in their short and long-term futures.
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.
This programme also won Children & Young People Now’s Financial Capability Award 2010!
