The Citi Money Gallery education programme draws on the richness of objects on display to offer a unique learning experience.
Students will have the opportunity to put their learning into context and apply their classroom-developed skills in unfamiliar scenarios. The programme links objects and themes with subjects across the Key Stages, with the underlying aim of developing an appreciation of money and an understanding of the social impacts it can have.
The education programme also includes learning opportunities for teachers and community groups, details of which can be found below or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org

Secondary school groups are invited to take part in a public speaking competition on the statement ‘money makes the world go round’ as part of the Citi Money Gallery’s secondary education programme.
Students will need to consider the role of money in the world and the impact it has on society and everyday life. Groups should create a 10-minute structured talk, presenting a reasoned argument from a viewpoint, economic or political for example, or through a theme, such as youth unemployment. The presentation will be followed by two minutes of questions from the judging panel, which will include the curator of the Citi Money Gallery.
Onsite and offsite opportunities are available to support community initiatives developing financial awareness.
The Citi Money Gallery Education Manager teamed up with students from The Children’s Hospital School at Great Ormond Street Hospital to explore concepts raised in The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.
Sessions are available to complement initial teacher training programmes; bespoke sessions may be available on request.
