‘Minding Your Money’ – Young Enterprise Financial Management event

‘Minding Your Money’ – Young Enterprise Financial Management event

This was a fascinating discussion, featuring Martin Lewis - MoneySaving Expert, and some panellists, about why we must support young people in becoming more financially capable and, by doing so, potentially give them greater social mobility.

Changing the narrative around financial education, to position it as an enabler and opportunity-maker was felt to be essential. Perhaps the greatest challenge was how to bring real, relevant and meaningful scenarios into student learning – and in ways which are realistic and achievable. Schools and teachers need support from parent carers, youth workers, communities etc to help young people build financial capability from an early age. To find out more, search for the Enterprising Mindsets podcast series and tune in.
