BSA launches financial education packs for members to use in schools

Classroom-desk-education-school.jpgWorking with financial education experts Young Money, the BSA is providing packages to its members to help them support financial education amongst young people.

According to Money Advice Service research last year, 85% of young adults wish that they had been taught more about money management at school or university, and feel their life would be better as a result.

BSA members can use the new materials to deliver financial education sessions in 14 subject areas targeted across Key Stages 1-4 of the curriculum. The sessions can be delivered by building society volunteers or teachers, and materials can be tailored for the school’s needs. The BSA is also supporting participating schools with some funding to access Young Money’s Subscription Service.

BSA members can log in to access the materials here:
