Our economic resources awarded the Quality Mark for personal finance education
The Citizenship Foundation’s economic resources have been awarded the coveted Quality Mark by the Personal Finance Education Group (pfeg).
The Quality Mark system ensures that resources for teaching financial capability are suitable, effective and of the highest educational quality, from reception to school leaving age.
Paying for It is our flagship economics programme, run in partnership with Aviva. It explores the relationship between the economy, government, society and school students.
The programme uses real life examples of how the wider economy impacts students’, using lesson plans, teacher training, regular e-newsletters and up-to-date news.
Paying for It culminates in the opportunity for students to take part in the prestigious Chance to be Chancellor.
