Overview

Take control of your financial future by learning how to manage your money

Despite the introduction of mandatory personal finance education in UK secondary schools, those aged 18-24 are one of the age groups most likely to be in debt – representing over a fifth of the UK’s debt-burdened population.

In this course you’ll learn to budget effectively, taking into account changes like getting older and leaving the family home. You’ll understand how to choose and manage savings accounts, and you’ll discover how to borrow sensibly and manage debts effectively. Ultimately, you’ll gain the ability to plan ahead and make your goals financially achievable.

16-18 year olds preparing for life after school or college. It is also relevant to those in their early 20s, preparing to leave higher education - or who have just recently left. This course is aimed at learners in the UK, however many of the subjects covered are relevant to learners in other countries.

This course has been generously funded by The Chartered Accountants’ Livery Company Charity.
