Teacher Resource Packs

Teacher Resource Packs in Cupboard

The Money Charity believes that educating young people about their finances, at an age where they’re starting to encounter having their own money and making future decisions, is one of the most important things we can do. But it can be really hard to know where to start. That’s why we’ve used our years of experience to create engaging and interactive Teacher Resource Packs which will help you and your school deliver quality Financial Education ‘in-house’, or as a supplement to one of our Money Workshops. We have 13 Packs in total across KS3 and KS4 and are in the process of making them all available for free download.

Our Teacher Resource Packs:

  • Are designed to fit into the national curriculum
  • Have been created using input and feedback from teachers
  • Can work as a stand-alone session or be used to build on one of our Financial Education Money Workshops
  • Contain around 1 hours’ worth of content, with three activities, such as card sorts, board games, clue hunts and discussions, each lasting around 20 minutes
  • Arrive fully-formed with all the instructions and resources needed to run the activities, each of which can also work as a stand-alone exercise, or within the full session

To get started delivering engaging and interactive Financial Education yourself, why not download one, some or all of them today, using the links below?
