Young Money would like to take this opportunity to thank Martin Lewis OBE, founder of MoneySavingExpert.com, for his generous donation, direction and passion that made the original Your Money Matters textbook possible, and for his contribution to this edition for Northern Ireland.
Young Money would also like to thank the Money and Pensions Service for providing funding alongside Martin Lewis to produce and deliver the textbook into schools in Northern Ireland.
We are very grateful for the advice and support offered by Young Enterprise Northern Ireland and CCEA, alongside teachers and industry experts in Northern Ireland who gave invaluable advice and support to ensure that the textbook was contextualised within a Northern Irish framework.
Young Enterprise Northern Ireland supports educational centres in Northern Ireland to develop the financial capability of the young people they work with.
We offer schools resources and support to make teaching financial education easy. We know that every school and college is unique and needs to find its own solution to meeting the needs of its learners. We believe that teachers know their pupils best and understand how to integrate financial capability into lessons and meet the requirements of their school curriculum.
