To help engage pupils in personal finance education, we've developed interactive videos to challenge them to make tricky financial decisions. Each video is broken up into branching scenes, which end with a tough decision where your class can discuss the choices available and decide what should happen next!



My Money Week

My Money Week is the national themed activity week which pfeg runs annually in June. There are loads more free resources, exciting ideas, videos and competitions all on our My Money Week microsite.

**The server that hosts the My Money Week interactive videos is currently down. We are doing our best to solve the issue and apologize for the inconvenience. Alternatively, free interactive DVDs are available to order and will arrive within 5 - 10 business days.**

The consequences of different choices are then explored in the next chapter. Each video is accompanied by a lesson plan, downloadable at the bottom of this page, to help you implement the videos in class and create discussion around them. All you have to do is display the video using a projector or an interactive whiteboard at the front of the class.

Have they got enough money to promote themselves? In the lead up to the gig, their various financial circumstances are revealed. Your pupils must help them to money decisions that will affect them and the future of the band.

Planning frameworks
Shown below is how this resource maps against the PFEG Financial Education Planning Frameworks.

This resource was particularly strong on the emotions associated with the choices about money.  The group apparently shared core goals for the band’s success, but these were quickly brought under pressure when decisions about spending had to be made. The struggle between making choices that are right for you, but disappoint others was well illustrated.

There was a good focus on the conflict between current desires and future needs and the fact that funding university needs to be considered.

There were some strong and contextually relevant references to the importance of budgeting and planning and the need for trade offs in decision making about money.
