Financial education today for a brighter tomorrow
“The students and lecturer who took part in the session found the talk to be extremely valuable and commented with positive feedback on the experience” – Ms Ron Cambridge/Senior Lecturer/ Academic Tutor/ London Metropolitan University

Why we do workshops for young people?
‘84% of students stress over money’ – The National Student Money Survey 2017
‘One in five is in debt all the time of 18-30 year olds surveyed’ – Young women’s Trust Survey
With the introduction of financial education to the school curriculum, our business aims to help address this need by providing resources and services for the classrooms.
At What’s Your Financial Gameplan?, we develop and deliver finance products and seminars for young people in schools, colleges, universities and communities. We have reached hundreds of young people in this way. Our belief is that it is essential for young people to have the right skills, knowledge and attitudes to get the best out of their money. We also make learning about finances fun, engaging and simple.
