During the Coronavirus pandemic lockdown, the Personal Finance Society’s My Personal Finance Skills programme was adapted to online financial education sessions for students aged 14 to 18.
Recording and articles from financial advisers were hosted online about money matters that impact teenagers such as scam awareness and how to make financial decisions.
The website will continue to be updated whilst the Personal Finance Society arranges for financial advisers to go back into schools to deliver workshops face to face.
Keith Richards, chief executive of the PFS, said: "We launched My Personal Finance Skills as a pro-bono programme allowing members to help educate the nation’s teenagers about money matters and I am absolutely delighted by the feedback from schools and the growing demand.
“Our 800 Education Champions are committed to resuming school workshops as soon as possible but also with assisting schools and colleges by providing financial education sessions virtually while bubbles must remain in place to slow the spread of coronavirus.
“We have also been able to launch a new dedicated consumer website during the lockdown as part of an ongoing expansion plan. We are not only committed to helping students have better financial awareness and providing the support to teachers who are passionate about students’ understanding of money, we plan to offer financial education and guidance much wider.”
