Frequently Asked Questions

The workshops are part of the Personal Finance Society’s My Personal Finance Skills programme. The Personal Finance Society is the professional body for personal finance processionals. All financial education workshops have been awarded the Financial Education Quality Mark by Young Money.

Both in-school and online financial education sessions are for students in KS4-5 (14-18 year olds). You can find out more about all our workshops and much more by downloading our school brochure here.

Workshops are delivered by a network of volunteers who are personal finance professionals and members of The Personal Finance Society. These local professionals have undergone a process of training and passed our sign-off process to deliver workshops at your school. As with other external visitors, our volunteers are not required to have a DBS certificate so we expect schools to accompany them at all times during their visit.

You can book as many workshops as you like and we work to fulfil your request. We may also be able to tailor the workshop for your school.

**April 2020 update**

We are currently not taking requests for this academic year due to the on-going Covid-19 outbreak but we do offer our free financial education sessions that can be accessed anytime by your students. We are looking to starting up our in-school workshops from September 2020.

The workshops are designed for groups of 30-35 students. However we can accommodate more students by running multiple sessions.

Workshops last 1 hour and are ideal for enrichment days, PHSE/Citizenship lessons or career insight days – as well as any other timetabled lesson.

Please let us know when booking and we can explore.

Workshops are delivered via a network of personal finance professionals who are part of a pro bono initiative that provides schools & colleges with free financial education workshops nationally.

Our free in-school financial education workshops delivered by one of our network of Education Champions is at the core of what we do and something we are proud to offer. Furthermore, the professional insights and knowledge that our volunteers have to offer your students is what makes the My Personal Finance Skills programme so special.

**April 2020**
As we are currently unable to deliver in-school workshops, we are offering an online alternative until it is safe to start with up with our in-school offer.
