Delivering financial education To your community
We're committed to financial education
As a society, we are passionate about being able to teach children and young people how to both appreciate and manage money effectively.
In the past 18 months, we have helped over 10,000 pupils across Wales and the borders through our financial education and careers based activities.
We will continue to support our hard working schools in the delivery of financial education & work with key partners, such as Young Money, Business in the Community, London Institute of Banking & Finance and Careers Wales in order to do so.
Below you’ll find out more about our current financial education programmes.
Talk Money Week
Talk Money Week is an annual event in support of the Financial Capability Strategy for the UK, with the aim of getting people talking about money.
We are greatly supportive of Talk Money Week and will continue to be involved each year, by teaching financial education to schools across Wales and the borders.
Talk Money and Pensions Week 2019 will be held during 18th-22nd November 2019. During this week, our colleagues will be visiting over 30 schools across Wales to deliver financial education sessions based on the story of Goose's Cake Bake. Commissioned by Principality, Laura Wall's Goose's Cake Bake storybook tells the story of a child who organises a bake sale to raise money to buy books, using themes of entrepreneurship, decision making and financial education throughout.
Principality Savings school
We have partnered with leading Science Discovery Centre Techniquest Glyndŵr to deliver a financial education programme from September – November 2019 to 11 schools across North Wales, Chester and Shrewsbury.
We are proud to be partnered with 5 schools across Wales as part of the Business Class school programme, led by Business in the Community and Careers Wales, along with helping an additional 14 schools.
The partnerships involve sponsorship for pupils to complete recognised financial qualifications with the London Institute of Banking & Finance, some of which are equivalent to a GCSE qualification. Since 2017, over 1100 pupils have gained qualifications. We also work closely with 3 schools on the Young Money Centre of Excellence in Financial Education programme.
Principality. Where home matters.
