How will it help your students?
This workshop will help your students to develop an awareness of what budgeting is and why it is important as a student, through engaging with practical activities to expand their understanding of what they may need to budget for in the future. Hands-on tasks will position the workshop within a real world setting, highlighting valuable life skills relating to money management.
Key information relating to student finance, such as tuition fees, maintenance loans, accommodation costs etc. is stored in an online notebook, called The Budget Book, which the students can edit and add their own notes to. This will be saved to allow the student to return to these notes after the workshop, extending their learning beyond the initial session.
