Why financial capability matters

Being good with money is an essential life skill. Financial capability means being equipped with the knowledge, skills and confidence to make good financial decisions at each life stage, and attain goals with choices. Research shows that 16-24 year olds are, however, vulnerable to falling into debt that can hold them back. In addition, over 80% of school leavers told us they wished they had learned more about money at school.

We’re changing that! 

Our teaching and learning packages equip students with know-how to start their financial journey on the right foot. The earlier people become good with money, the better they will fare throughout their lives.
