Call for Evidence
Financial Education: Terms of reference
Written submissions are invited on the following:
- What should we be teaching young people about money? What should financial education include and are there any aspects missing from the current provision?
- Where should financial education sit within the National Curriculum between the ages of 11 and 16? To what extent does its current position within the curriculum limit the amount of delivery time it receives? Should financial education form part of a core subject, such as mathematics?
- What steps should be taken to support teachers and schools in their delivery of financial education?
- Should the provision of financial education in schools be extended beyond key stages three and four. Is there scope for it to be embedded more extensively at primary-school level?
- The Government has outlined proposals to ensure that all students study some form of maths up until the age of 18 – should financial education be included in these plans and, if so, how?
- Examples of best practice in teaching financial education are welcomed.
