Money Matters Programme

As Suffolk's only home grown financial services provider we're uniquely placed to use our expertise to enhance learning opportunities for young people in our county. Money Metrics is our new programme designed to meet the new National Curriculum requirements for personal finance and citizenship, developed by an educational consultant and young people focus groups. Delivered by two members of our fully trained staff, the interactive sessions comprise of one four hour session (with break), and a two hour follow up or we can tailor the sessions to suit school time tables. Throughout the sessions the students are rewarded for their work and input, earning 'money' which culminates in a game. The winning team is added to our inter-school leader board – who'll be top at the end of the year? At the end of the session we'll issue students with a competency certificate, which outlines how they've achieved the National Curriculum criteria.
