We are launching this year’s Personal Finance Teacher of the Year Awards – could it be you or your kids’ teacher?
At Moneywise, we believe it is never too soon for young people to learn about their finances. By mastering money basics early on in life, they can grow up to be the most financially savvy generation yet.
We have teamed up with our parent company interactive investor to offer schools with the best personal finance teachers a share of £12,500 to spend on equipment. Teachers at both primary and secondary level in UK schools are eligible for the competition.
We will make separate awards to teachers at primary and secondary school level, splitting the £12,500 between the winners and runners-up in several categories.
Are you a parent, pupil, school governor or teacher? Do you know someone who is teaching personal finance at school? Would you like to nominate someone for this award? We want to know how they make the teaching of personal finance fun, interactive and relevant to the children they teach.
To put forward your nominations, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of the teacher(s) and the name and address of the school(s), plus why you are nominating them.
Personal finance teachers can also enter the awards directly. Please email email@example.com.
Moneywise will then contact teachers who have entered the competition, inviting them to submit their entry, including three favourite personal finance lessons.
