Finance Curriculum Intent Statement

This finance curriculum will give students the chance to become financially independent and to prepare for life after education. Students will not only learn the skills of effective money management but also about income and expenditure, financial products and how public money is raised and spent. This wide selection of topics introduces students to many of the essential skills that employers say are missing, including independent thinking and numerical skills. Even if students are not considering a career in finance, being financially capable will enable students to make sound financial decisions throughout their lives. The core purpose of our financial curriculum is to consider how each lesson can create unique opportunities for students to achieve their personal best. We aim to enable every pupil to leave with an accredited academic qualification with options leading to further education or employment and personal economic wellbeing.
