The Basic Skills Agency is holding a series of events in June to support practitioners new to teaching financial literacy

The workshops will:

– inform practitioners about the resources available to aid the teaching of financial skills

– demonstrate how financial literacy is a useful context for teaching literacy and numeracy

– show how existing literacy and numeracy programmes can be used to teach financial skills and knowledge

– assist with the development of financial literacy programmes

If you are new to teaching financial literacy and would like to find out what resources are available, what accreditation exists and how to make learning personal finance interesting then these workshops are for you!

Please note: if you already have experience in teaching financial literacy then these workshops may not be suitable for you.

Introduction to Teaching Financial Literacy and Basic Skills workshops are being held on the following dates:

  • London 14 June 2006
  • Leeds 22 June 2006
  • Bristol 27 June 2006

Each workshop will run from 10 am to 4 pm, with registration from 9.30 am.
