FSA teams up with Teachers’ TV

The FSA has teamed up with Teachers’ TV to offer a series of programmes about personal financial education to be aired on the channel.
The series, called Financial Capability, is made up of four programmes with two designed for use in class as a teaching aid and two designed to build teacher confidence in the subject.
The initiative complements the existing programmes offered in the regulator’s Learning Money Matters programme, which 278 schools have so far signed up for.
FSA director of retail themes Vernon Everitt says: “This collaboration with Teacher’s TV is an excellent way in which to support the Government’s strategy of raising the status and profile of finance education in schools.
Helping teachers feel capable and confident in delivering lessons on practical financial matters is a key element in ensuring tomorrow’s adults can manage their finances well.”
