Core modules

We want these financial literacy educational materials be as easy to use as possible, which is why our modules are divided into three 45-minute chunks with simple 10–20-minute exercises. But, to make the most of the time you have, we encourage you to pick and mix from the materials below.

And don’t worry if you lack confidence in financial literacy yourself — each module comes with a glossary of key terms, frequently asked questions and multiple video explainers.

We really hope you enjoy using them and we encourage you to share with us any feedback you might have by emailing our head of content, Chantelle Clarke on
