Financial Literacy in KS2 – Mathematics & Health and Well-being AoLE SOUTH WALES (Cardiff)
Presenter: Gaynor Murphy,

‘Numeracy is a key enabler in making a number of informed decisions, in particular, managing money and supporting good financial decision‑making and critically engaging with social norms around money’ Health & Well-being AoLE (draft 2019).

According to the latest Estyn report Managing Money (July 2017) “not all teachers have the knowledge and skills to help them deliver financial education confidently”

In an increasingly complex financial world, it is important that we develop pupils’ financial capability from an early age to equip them with the knowledge, skills and attitudes to manage money well and to prepare them for the opportunities and challenges that money brings to their lives.

This course will support teachers in identifying opportunities to plan and deliver financial education, as well as advise and provide a wealth of teaching resources.

As we begin addressing some of the challenges that have impacted on literacy in the last year, why might GGR be more important than ever?
