With financial education help, young people can understand the housing market, and make informed choices

I have worked in property for a long time now and have spent much of that time trying to make sure young people understand the realities of the housing market. When you compare ‘average house prices’ versus ‘average wages’, getting on the property ladder seems like an impossible task. However, if everyone, and young people in particular, are educated as to the financials of housing, buying and renting isn’t quite as ‘out of reach’ as we are often led to believe.

pfeg and Young Enterprise now operating under one roof and with one goal.

The merger of pfeg into Young Enterprise on the 1 September was the start - and not the beginning - of the journey in the process to create the UK's leading enterprise and financial education charity. An important milestone was reached at the end of October, when we packed up the office in Bonhill St and moved into Young Enterprise's offices about a mile away in Sekforde St. Now the crates are unpacked, desks sorted and IT systems up and running, we can focus on the task of developing a long-term, sustainable skills strategy that is founded on enterprise and financial education - one that works for teachers, college tutors, youth workers, employers and young people.

Bringing Up Britain: Our financial education tips for parents and carers

Tonight I will be on the latest edition of Bringing Up Britain (Radio 4, 8pm), joining Mariella Frostrup and a panel of academics to discuss parenting and money matters. Parents have a key role to play in helping children learn about money, and with changes to the National Curriculum for England on the way later this year, financial education at home has never been more important.
