Sporty Money Twist is an innovative blend of active games and discussion that communicates key financial messages in a fun and effective way.
Two sessions give young people the opportunity to ‘play’ with financial education, which in turn brings money to life and strengthens learning:
- My Money: Sources of income, minimum wage, careers, payslips, tax, national insurance, auto enrolment and government income & expenditure.
- My Choices: Needs & wants, lifestyle choices, budgeting, risk, long terms savings and investments.
Sporty Money Twist approaches financial capability in a hands-on manner as young people play games and work together to understand and address key topics like public finance. The key elements of fun, friendly competition and detailed content allow participants to discuss and share their views in an engaging and comfortable environment.
The programme is designed to get young people thinking and caring about their finances, both now and in their short and long-term futures. Participants are given the opportunity to learn and change their behaviour through activities that cater for all levels of ability.
Sporty Money Twist can be delivered on a playing area outside or in a large indoor hall.
Our own research has shown Sporty Money Twist to be more effective than our standard classroom based version.
“Saving is the last thing I think about but I’m always broke and my mum is sick of lending me small bits of money all the time. I enjoyed the games we did because it was fun, entertaining and something different. I learnt that it’s important to prioritise; to know what you want and what you need and to know the difference between them. Young people need to know about this stuff!” Georgina, 16, Essex Boys & Girls Club, National Citizen Service.
“Doing a workshop like this which is so active is really brilliant for these young people. During the sessions you can tell that they’re really engaged and even after the sessions they look at their own personal finances so it gets them really thinking”. Youth Worker, Rebecca Stanley, Essex Boys & Girls Club.
