First-ever financial education textbook to hit schools in Northern Ireland
The first-ever financial education textbook to hit schools in Northern Ireland – funded jointly by MoneySavingExpert.com founder Martin Lewis and the Money & Pensions Service – has been announced today, following the successful rollout of the original version in England.
In November 2018, 340,000 copies of the very first financial education textbook in the UK, Your Money Matters, were distributed to English secondary schools. The book (pictured above) was funded by Martin with a personal donation of £325,000 to the financial education charity Young Money.
Now over 45,000 copies of new versions of the book will be sent free to 700 schools in the rest of the UK over the next 14 months, along with an accompanying teacher’s guide (which will be available digitally). The Money and Pensions Service and Martin Lewis are splitting the cost of the £368,000 project.
You can download a free PDF of the English edition of the textbook now. The Northern Ireland edition of the textbook will also be available as a free PDF download to anyone who wants them in due course.
