The second season in a new-style free financial education resource launches with our fave characters, Ben, Rio and Amber. Students can now follow their further adventures in Season 2. With school behind them, they’ve moved on to the next stage of their lives. Ben and Rio are sharing a flat and Amber is at uni close by. For the first time they’re learning how to be financially independent… or are they?
Get Real with money develops financial capability and life skills in secondary students and covers learning objectives within the UK financial education curricula. The resource now spans 10 episodes, each comprising a short film, a dynamic teacher’s presentation, PDF worksheets and a flexible lesson plan (30, 60 or 90 minute sessions or combine to use on a curriculum/enterprise day).
As part of its Citizenship work, Nationwide asked us to create its free education programme in 2007. Since then, we’ve taken it from strength to strength, attracting over 50 million hits and downloads, and always staying true to its principle of being free to use and independent of Nationwide’s products and services.
