The Financial Services Authority and Teachers' TV are launching a series of programmes about personal financial education in schools.
The series, entitled Financial Capability, consists of four programmes – two are designed for use in class as a teaching aid and the other two are designed to build teacher confidence in the subject.
The initiative is part of the FSA's national strategy for financial capability, which brings together consumer bodies, representatives from the industry and the government to find ways of helping people feel more confident with their money.
The series is designed to complement existing programmes offered in the FSA’s Learning Money Matters programme, which 278 schools have signed up to so far.
The programmes will be aired today and tomorrow, and they can be downloaded from the Teachers' TV website.
Teachers' TV is available on digital satellite and cable television and on Freeview.
