Helping you be better with money
Rather than throwing a lot of information at you that you might not use, need or understand, our courses are designed to help you help yourself be better with money.
Our courses allow you the time to really think about your relationship with money, how you feel about it, how you use it and your bad money habits. We want to help you break those habits by teaching you some new skills and giving you the knowledge you need to plan effectively for any future financial event.
You may think that your financial dreams are just that, but learning to be better with money can help you make your dreams a reality. By taking the time to plan out your finances today, you can help yourself get into a better position financially and make sure you achieve tomorrow’s goals.
Why financial education is important
You might have heard that financial education is now on the school curriculum, but as an adult there’s no continued education for these important life skills.
The majority of people, at some point in their lives, will need to start managing their own finances and most people just learn as they go along. That’s fine for some people but if you don’t know how to manage your money now, it can be difficult to prepare for the future, and by the time a big life event occurs it might be too late to plan and too late to save money.
Learning to be better with money now helps you to create your own budget, to avoid overspending and set a little aside for the future and the things you’ve always wanted. If you’re living pay cheque to pay cheque, or you have problem debts that are dragging you down, financial education can help you to get in control and to make the most of your money.
Financial wellbeing is just as important as your health, and it can even affect it in the short and longer-term. So if you can learn to manage your money effectively you could be happier and healthier.
There’s a huge amount of information available on the internet but it can be difficult to know where to search, who to trust and to even have the time to read through everything that’s on offer. Financial education developed by finance professionals that provides you with the things you need to know will help you get on the right track to being better with your money.
Which course is right for you?
While some aspects of Financial Education are universal in how they apply and
who they apply to, there are considerations that either need greater focus as we become older or simply don't apply at all when we're younger - very few people under 30 will be focused on supporting their kids through university for example.
With that in mind we've separated our Financial Education into two courses, broadly representing the concerns and lessons that will be of most importance when: you are toward the start of your working life - "Early Career Financial Education"; and when you've some years of work behind you and your financial responsibilities have increased and solidified, and your financial horizon has necessarily shifted to include longer term objectives and goals - "Mid-Career Financial Education".
