Money minds

Money Minds is a financial education programme, aimed at 5 to 19 years old, which is delivered directly by our colleagues in schools across the UK.

Our colleagues use their volunteering allowance to deliver a Money Minds session in a school of their choice, which helps teachers meet the need to improve young people’s financial education.

There are 10 different topics to choose from, adapted to each key stage. Young children can learn about how to keep money safe and budgeting, whereas older students can learn about Buying a House or about Pensions.

Money Minds was developed following requests from teachers visiting our branches and also from colleagues who expressed an interest in engaging with their local schools. In 2016 more than 180 sessions have been delivered, helping over 4,700 students understand more about money. The feedback we have received from students, teachers and colleagues has been extremely positive, particularly regarding the content, interactivity and the experience of all involved.
