This framework aims to support the planning, teaching, and progression of financial education by setting out the key areas of financial knowledge, skills and attitudes, across four core themes.
The framework is designed to help you deliver financial education flexibly across the range of subjects and learning opportunities available within your school’s curriculum. It is not intended to be used rigidly. You may need to draw on ideas from other ages depending on the needs of your pupils.
It can be used in a number of ways, for example to:
• gauge students’ starting points for financial education;
• identify learning outcomes for lessons and schemes of work;
• map existing provision and identify gaps;
• plan for progression between ages and key stages.
A framework for 11-19 years is also available.
