Why teach financial life skills?

Many students currently leaving high school – and many adults – have weak financial life skills.  Also, they have little knowledge of the financial realities they’ll face.  Result: Many make costly mistakes, and are more vulnerable to scams and fraud.

By teaching financial life skills, you can give them the practical abilities and knowledge they’ll need to effectively manage their finances and achieve their goals.

In this new video, you can now learn about the tools, techniques and tips to help you teach financial life skills to your students. 

In the video, Mike Darnbrough, a retired teacher with over 30 years of teaching experience, takes you through – step-by-step – the comprehensive and easy-to-use Planning 10 resource and web pages.
