Free Financial Capability Textbook
Your Money Matters textbook
Our free Financial Capability textbook for Key Stage 4 (post-primary Years 11 and 12) students is now available for download. Your Money Matters (Northern Ireland edition) is a collaboration between Young Money, Young Enterprise Northern Ireland, the Money and Pensions Service, and Martin Lewis (founder of MoneySavingExpert.com).
Physical copies of the textbook will be delivered to all post-primary schools once they are able to re-open. Each school will be receiving 75 copies, free of charge, so keep an eye out for your box of textbooks! In the meantime, we are making electronic copies of the textbook and accompanying Teacher’s Guide and PowerPoint available now to download for you to use as part of your remote learning offer to students.
