Overview

Through support from Capital One, we have worked with the Career Development Institute to produce this resource aimed at secondary teachers delivering careers education.

One of the main aims of careers education is to enable individuals to
“develop a range of character attributes… which underpin success in
education and employment.”
Financial and economic understanding has a key role to play in achieving this aim; it will lead to increased financial capability and provide a sound basis on which to make career choices.

This guide aims to:
help teachers understand the connections between careers
education and financial education;

help schools develop a coherent approach to the delivery of financial education through careers education and other curriculum subjects;

provide practical ideas and activities for teaching financial education within careers education.

Comments & reviews
Quality Mark assessors comments: 

‘Careers teachers who have been asked to undertake financial education as part of their brief will find this resource invaluable.  It begins with a crystal-clear explanation of the links between careers and financial education, backed up with links to the relevant educational documentation, firmly basing it on the content of the National Curriculum.  It explains exactly what is meant by financial capability and financial education and its relevance to students.  It then delivers a framework for delivery to students in KS3, KS4 and post-16, providing ideas and links to resources which teachers will find invaluable in their planning of the various topics.  All of the content is linked to the pfeg framework and the guidance for careers education.  There are also resource sheets for use with students which act as stand-alone lesson content.’
