Educators

The following resources are provided freely and updated regularly for teachers, facilitators, youth workers, home educators and parents who may wish to guide the financial learning of their children, students or clients.

All educators, across all age groups, across all learning areas in all educational settings have a shared responsibility to develop the financial capability of students. Financial education impacts every lifestyle and career path, hence it should be integrated into all programs of learning.

Implementation ideas

Schools, universities, TAFEs, churches and other youth centres have many options for using some of our resources to improve the financial capability and future wellbeing of students.

Here are some ideas that can be implemented by an educator, aide, chaplain, community liaison officer or parent volunteer.

Teenfinca®

(Teenage Financial Capability)

  • Inform students on assemblies of the free Teenfinca® ezine and make hard copies available in libraries and classrooms.
  • Place a link to the ezine on your school Facebook page or under the Community Partners link on your school website.
  • Discuss articles within the student ezine in pastoral care or student wellbeing programs.
  • Monthly, invite a financial mentor or sponsor to speak with interested students about topics within the ezine.
  • Incorporate articles within the ezine in curriculum programs e.g. write a response in English, analyse and discuss articles in Business Education, Economics classes.
  • Establish a ‘club’ of interested students to discuss, debate, reflect on the articles.

ePosters

  • Print copies of eposters, laminate and place around your site, especially in places where ‘spending’ decisions are made.
  • Place a selection of your ezines on your website or Facebook page to encourage your community of families to make use of these resources within their homes.
  • If your site is a school or similar, prompt a student leader to highlight an eposter on assembly once per month, discussing its key message.
  • Discuss the eposters in pastoral care programs.
  • Incorporate eposters in curriculum programs e.g. design an eposter in graphics or art, create a marketing strategy in Business Education or English.

Courses: No Place To Be, Youth Debt

Discuss and share learning from The Wealth Academy’s online courses with peers, educators and family where appropriate.

Organise a follow up workshop to locally contextualise youth debt and develop shared strategies.
