Organised as part of the education programme for the British Museum’s Citi Money Gallery, this conference will provide delegates with models and strategies to deliver empowering financial education, which is now a compulsory part of Mathematics and Citizenship in the revised secondary National Curriculum.

The conference will begin with a talk by Martin Lewis of MoneySavingExpert.com on why realistic financial education is necessary. Museum collections and resources are excellent starting points for reinvigorating financial education and the key aim of the conference is to introduce fresh approaches to delivering it.

The conference will build on existing activities and demonstrate how new techniques can be embedded into units of work. Through short sessions and practical activities, it will showcase best practice from teachers, students and charity initiatives.

In addition to the main conference there are workshops during the morning. Details are in the programme which is available to download below.

The conference will be followed by a networking drinks reception.
