Personal Finance Teacher of the Year Awards

We are delighted to be able to recognise the people who go the extra mile to help put future generations on a firm financial footing. The Personal Finance Teacher of the Year Awards celebrate the best of personal finance education in Britain, rewarding hard-working teachers at primary and secondary schools who make the difference to their students.

Full details of the 2020 awards, including how to nominate a teacher, can be found here.

quoteThese awards recognise innovative, relevant and fun personal finance lessons which can set students up for a healthier financial future. We would like to see as many entries as possible. Last year the entries from teachers were so inspiring that we doubled the prize pot for winning schools to £24,000 – and we are honouring that again this year.

Family Financial Education Awards

To recognise the dedication of parents and carers to home-schooling during the coronavirus crisis, we have launched the Family Financial Education Awards. 

There is £250 for up to 20 households who have best taught their children about money matters.

Send your lesson plans and/or work examples plus a supporting statement to editorial@ii.co.uk.

quoteLearning has always been a team effort by teachers and parents, but it is even more so now that home learning is on the agenda and parents are having to get more hands-on with learning than ever before.

Money lessons can be brought into all sorts of home learning, from maths to food tech. Whether you decide to have a home ‘tuck shop’ or count up all the loose change behind the sofa, there are plenty of fun ways to help kids get to grips with money.
