MONEY AND YOU (PERSONAL FINANCE AND FINANCIAL AWARENESS COURSES)
Finance is a part of our everyday life, and having basic personal financial knowledge is one of the most important things you can do to live a healthy, happy and secure life. Understanding the fundamentals of money, budgeting, saving and debt can:
• promote good savings habits
• teach financial awareness and responsibility; budgets that we learn how to actively manage, help us spend wisely
• affect one’s credit score which impacts your entire life: getting a job, applying for a credit card, renting a flat, buying a home or car, getting insurance, etc.
• lead to financial health and positive attitudes around money

Young people should have the benefit of financial experience and education to make good decisions with money – big or small. Our ‘Money and You’ courses are created, developed and run by a business and economics specialist, and highly experienced educator. Engaging, interesting and dynamic courses to really inspire your young person.
