MyBnk would like to welcome back teachers, young people and youth workers joining us for a very exciting new academic year.
Financial education has burst into the National Curriculum for the very first time, we have revamped programmes, fresh free resources, a burgeoning Impact Centre, a Teachers Advisory Panel, new microfinance schemes and ambitious plans for the next 12 months.
This year we are aiming to reach over 40,000 young people, 20% more than 2013/14 and start new delivery projects via Comic Relief and the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation. We are also expanding our work in the Cornwall and Plymouth areas, contact [email protected]
Programmes & National Curriculum
MyBnk’s suite of programmes are updated on a regular basis so that what we deliver in and out the classroom is fresh and accurate. This summer we tightened our existing mapping to the new National Curriculum requirements in Citizenship and Maths, added new activities around consumer choice, created new budgeting videos and piloted a physical financial education project with Activate Sport and the National Citizens Service.
We also have a number of funded sessions available – get in touch for more:
Free financial education resources
Fresh on our website, the TES and Guardian Teachers Network you will find our new budgeting videos of young people facing financial problems. Young people then have to help the individuals achieve their goals by deciding what spending to cut or by providing alternatives. Each series carries slideshow quizzes, PDF activity sheets and lesson plans.
Next up we have vox pops asking young people ‘Why do you save?’ This video can be used as a starter for a discussion with Primary School students about the benefits of savings or general financial education. Both resources are slices of MyBnk’s Money Twist Key Stage 3 & 4/5 programmes.
Teachers Advisory Panel
We have formed an expert panel of teachers and providers from across the sector to share best practice and exchange ideas on what works in the classroom regarding financial education. Interested?
