We want to celebrate the schools that are championing financial education. Our Centres of Excellence programme does this by recognising and rewarding schools who are committing to excellence in financial education across their own school and beyond.

We are working with a range of businesses to transform schools into Centres of Excellence by supporting them to successfully deliver practical and sustainable financial education. 

With guidance from a financial education consultant, schools work towards our Young Money improvement framework – a set of national professional standards they need to meet. This involves creating engaging and inspiring learning programmes, alongside staff development and training. 

Young people are at the heart of the programme. The goal is that they leave school with the knowledge, skills and confidence to be able to make informed and independent financial decisions.
