Schools Offer – financial education and more
This is the most common comment we hear on our training. The Money Advice Service (MAS) has additionally proven that teaching money skills is a way of engaging pupils who struggle to access other parts of the curriculum and are at risk of exclusion. It’s relevant to everyone.
Our CEO, Rebecca, is an experienced secondary school teacher and trainer and strongly believes that much of what Your Own Place offers to people at risk of homelessness should be a provision that is universally available. ‘A ‘curriculum for life’ isn’t just engaging, it’s essential to making a successful transition to adulthood, for which we all have a responsibility’.
Below are examples of modules to choose from
What do we do?
Teachers have enough to be expert in, so Your Own Place offers:
- Assemblies and inspirational talks on money matters, housing, homelessness, transitions and independence
- One-off financial education lessons
- Half-days, full-days or a whole term of innovative and highly engaging small and large group workshops in understanding money, money management, debt and savings, bills, digital money management as well as lots more. You can see the 24 modules above
Because young people want to learn about money. As well as a route back into mainstream lessons for those struggling, the difference our workshops make is on their ability to make and sustain relationships, get on with their peers and find their own solutions as they navigate their move to independence.
Our workshops are impactful on all young people and especially those at risk of exclusion, struggling to learn and manage their behaviour
Does it work?
Young people must be better prepared for adult life as well as in the classroom to have the best shot at adult life. Engaging subjects keep children engaged!
