At Young Money we want all schools to be able to talk with confidence and consistency to their students about money.
Your Money Matters, our financial education textbook funded by a £325,000 pledge from Martin Lewis OBE, founder of MoneySavingExpert.com, will mean curriculum mapped textbooks will be sent to all state funded English secondary schools in 2018/19.
Your Money Matters is a major step forward in achieving a degree of consistency to the financial education young people receive within secondary schools by providing teachers with access to a high quality teaching resource to support and enhance financial education delivery.
