Through the financial education provision mapping, the Money and Pensions Service (MaPS) aims to provide a snapshot of financial education programmes for children and young people across the UK. This report sets out findings from the mapping exercise undertaken for 2020/21.
The skills, knowledge, attitudes and behaviours that help people to manage money and achieve good financial wellbeing begin to develop from an early age.
The UK Strategy for Financial Wellbeing, coordinated by MaPS, set a national goal to ensure two million more children and young people receive a meaningful financial education by 2030.
Progress towards this national goal is measured through the triennial Children and Young People’s Financial Capability survey; initial results from the 2022 survey will be published in early 2023. This report offers additional insights into the state of financial education provision across the country as the sector works towards the goal.
