My Money Talks is delivered by the Scotland's Finanical Schools (SFS) team at Young Enterprise Scotland. It consists of two 50 minute workshops called 'Making the Most of your Money' and 'Borrowing'. Students will discuss making positive choices when spending money and learn about the importance of setting and sticking to a budget.
They will also identify safe places to borrow from and the impact of debt on mental health. The aim is to improve student confidence in managing their finances before they leave school and be aware of various websites and resources where they can seek further help and advice.
Financial wellbeing is an essential skill for life, learning and work and has strong links to improving employability choices and opportunities.
