We use our proprietary board game and learning application to simulate real-world experiences for our financial literacy programme. Students are challenged to be experimental while learning important values and having fun!
Our learning materials were designed and developed with support from the Lifelong Learning Council. The Lifelong Learning Council, which consists of private and public sector leaders and was set up by the Skillsfuture Singapore (SSG) and Workforce Singapore (WSG) formerly known as Singapore Workforce Development Agency (WDA).
The learning concepts in this workshop are based on the Financial Literacy Book, Take Charge: be Money Smart in 7 Steps. We hope the workshop will encourage your students to take charge of their finances and career pathway. We want them to increase their income potential, improve the way they make financial decisions, safeguard their future, and develop life goals to long-lasting happiness.
