Financial education guidance for primary and secondary schools in Scotland

Published on:

This guidance, endorsed by Scottish Government, aims to support both primary and secondary schools to play their part in achieving this goal. 

The UK Strategy for Financial Wellbeing sets a national goal to ensure that 150,000 more children and young people growing up in Scotland receive a meaningful financial education by 2030. 

Developed for school leaders, subject leads and other education decision-makers, the guidance highlights the links between financial education and the Curriculum for Excellence, setting out how schools can improve the financial education they deliver, and signposting to services and resources that can help. 

The guidance is available in English and Gaelic.
