Young Enterprise and Young Money work directly with young people, their teachers, parents, businesses and influencers to build a successful and sustainable future for all young people.  We work in partnership with educators, volunteers and our supporters to provide meaningful opportunities for young people to develop an enterprising mindset in which to apply critical skills to navigate successful future pathways. Through our employability, enterprise and financial education programmes, resources and teacher training, we empower young people to discover, develop and celebrate their skills and potential.

Our Resources in Welsh

Financial Education Planning Frameworks – Download Now!

The Planning Frameworks aim to support the planning, teaching, and progression of financial education by setting out the key areas of financial knowledge, skills and attitudes, across core themes for ages 3 – 11 and 11 – 19.

The frameworks aim to support the planning, teaching, and progression of financial education by setting out the key areas of financial knowledge, skills and attitudes, across four core themes:

  • How to manage money
  • Becoming a critical consumer
  • Managing risks and emotions associated with money
  • Understanding the important role money plays in our lives

The frameworks are designed to help you deliver financial education flexibly across your curriculum. It is not intended to be used rigidly.

You can also download PowerPoint versions of each chapter of the Textbook for you to use in your lessons, or edit and tailor sections of content depending on the age and ability of your class.
