As part of the Money Smarts programme, we offer a week-long programme of activity to help give students an understanding of financial skills. In addition, it offers training on valuable skills such as writing a CV and performing well in an interview. Financial literacy is a life skill that will travel with students as they journey into adulthood. Skills learned now will empower your students to truly embrace all of life’s opportunities with confidence – today, and into the future.
Our material is tailored to Junior and Senior cycle pupils and we aim to make the learning experience engaging and enjoyable for them. We can also provide a financial talk for parents or guardians of these students to help them prepare financially for life after secondary school.
