Many young people are not equipped with the necessary skills about money when they go into the “real world”. This course aims to develop skills in basic money matters to prevent them from being financially disadvantaged. We will cover the following topics: payslips, different documents used by retailers, budgeting, banking, credit, savings, credit cards, changing spending habits, setting financial goals, insurance etc. This half year course will cover half of the topics mentioned.
