Money Twist workshops cover practical and relevant everyday financial matters. Each of the sessions focuses on a different topic:
- My Money: Payslips, tax, national insurance, government spending, minimum wage and careers.
- My Choices: Needs vs. Wants, choices & lifestyle, budgeting, saving and goals.
- My Future: Interest, inflation, ethical choices, flow of money, jargon buster, accounts, credit, debt and credit history.
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 which people 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. Throughout the workshop series, participants build a money journey of the things which they have learnt.

Money Twist is based on the Every Child Matters, Ofsted and PSHEE guidelines on financial literacy, and maps into aspects of the PSHEE, Citizenship, Maths and English curriculum. It is ideal for financial capability focus days, enterprise weeks or can be delivered over a number of weeks.
Multiple Money Twist workshops can be run simultaneously to allow several groups to take part at once.
“It was fun and a new experience to learn about handling my money and what happens to it. Thank you very much for helping me understand things that I did not know before like National Insurance”.
Mount Carmel Technology College in Islington ran several Money Twist workshops during an off-timetable day.
