Aspire provides young people with a wider understanding of how the economy works, equipping them with important life skills. They will learn about how to make smart financial decisions on how they make, save and invest money. The course will inspire them to consider options they may not have been aware of, take control of their futures and achieve their goals.
Students will learn about the economy holistically through different perspectives: as a consumer, an employee and an entrepreneur or employer, and understand its relevance to their lives. They will consider how this knowledge might affect their careers decisions, and how they manage their money now and in the future.
The course comprises three interactive, flexible lessons where students will explore topics, through relatable characters and different scenarios. Currently, there are already 200 registered teachers across the UK who are engaged and using the course with their students.
