MoneySmart Teaching program
Knowing how to manage money is one of the most important and challenging features of everyday life. The MoneySmart Teaching program is a comprehensive strategy to develop consumer and financial literacy capabilities in young people throughout their schooling.
MoneySmart Teaching professional development for current and pre-service teachers
Training sessions are planned across the state including schools in remote and regional areas. The program provides fully-funded professional development and resources for teachers to instil responsible financial behaviours to assist young people in making educated financial choices from an early age.
Teachers who complete the training will:
- be introduced to MoneySmart Teaching resources aligned to the Australian Curriculum P-10
- be better equipped with the tools and confidence to engage students on consumer and financial literacy issues through the 'Financial health for teachers' resources
- contribute to a generation of young people who demonstrate responsible consumer and financial literacy behaviour characterised by informed decision making
- learn about the benefits of becoming a MoneySmart school.
Web conferences via Department of Education's (DoE) OneChannel website are scheduled throughout the year. To date, MoneySmart Teaching professional development sessions have attracted attendance from across Queensland. Please refer to DoE's professional development calendar for scheduled sessions.
