#FinancialLiteracy / HSBC and Young Money develop financial education portal

Developed with support from HSBC UK, the new programme aims to improve financial capabilities of one million children ages 3 to 11 over the next three years.

In addition to giving teachers and parents access to a steady stream of resources and guidance, they can also track and share individual children’s learning plans on the platform.

The Money Heroes online hub includes family-friendly games to play at home, a parent guide and teach audit tool and a regular podcast featuring experts in financial education, parenting and wellbeing

Up-and-coming developments include school support for teachers, including free in-house teacher training for over 500 primary schools over 2021 and 2022, and storybooks available in print and online from well-known authors.
