MoneyLIVE, Safeside's innovative financial literacy programme, takes place in our realistic street scenarios just like all our other programmes. Delivered in partnership with Nationwide Building Society, whose staff deliver scenarios as part of their volunteering, the scheme covers credit and debit, budgeting, personal safety and security, online safety, financial products, payday loans, consequences of debt and much more.
Safeside Manager Rob Hattersley said: "Feedback we get from both teachers and Year 8 students is that teaching maths and citizenship in a real house, shop, building society branch, court room, bus and street reaches the parts that classroom maths lessons can't reach. We aren't aware of any other similar programme in the UK and are delighted that due to such dedicated support from Nationwide volunteers, we can now offer this exciting course at a new price of £2.50 per pupil, reduced from our usual £6.00."
"MoneyLIVE is only available once a month," Rob added, "so get booked in soon. We are now taking booking for the whole academic year."
