Learning outcomes for participants/users and, where relevant, pupils or students

This course is open to all Primary NQTs, RQTs and teachers in England who are new to teaching financial education in the primary classroom.

The one day course will provide teachers with the knowledge, skills and confidence to plan and deliver financial education in the primary classroom, as well as guidance on activities for your whole school.

Participants will explore creative ways to integrate financial education across the curriculum and will have the chance to apply their learning in a practical session designing their own resource that can be taken back to school and used in the classroom.

This is a fantastic opportunity for teachers to not only improve thier teaching of financial education but also to enhance their professional portfolios.

Evidence underpinning this approach

During our What Money Means in Initial Teacher Training project, pfeg worked closely with a cohort of universities and teaching schools, enabling tutors to include personal finance education in their programme for primary trainee teachers. In September 2013, we launched a new online toolkit for teacher trainers: .

This project has strengthened pfeg’s conviction that one of the most effective ways to raise the profile of personal finance in schools is to work with trainee teachers. A natural extension then to our work with ITTs and trainee teachers is to extend our support to Newly Qualified Teachers, Recently Qualified Teachers and teachers new to delivering financial education.  With support from HSBC, pfeg are able to deliver a series of training events, delivered by pfeg consultants.

How users/participants can evaluate success

Throughout the day, participants will complete a Learning Journey, allowing them to focus on their teaching objectives for financial education.

Our Advisory Service offers free help and support for teachers new to financial education:



The course will be led by expert pfeg consultants. In the morning delegates will explore ways to integrate financial education into different areas of their curriculum. In the afternoon, delegates, with the support of consultants, will develop their own activities which they can take back and deliver in their own classrooms. The training day will also explore ways delegates can share their learning with their colleagues.

Delegates will also be provided with a pack of pfeg quality marked resources.
