Financial education funding round (closed)

The EEF and Money Advice Service are seeking proposals that help children develop skills and habits that can both improve academic attainment and maximise their chances of being financially capable in adulthood. The building blocks of financial capability in childhood include broad skills such as numeracy, self-regulation and perseverance, which also underpin educational attainment; developing positive financial habits (such as saving, and setting limits around spending and sticking to them); and an age-relevant understanding of money and the financial system. Proposals may focus on any of these elements and we are open to a range of approaches. However, we will prioritise those approaches that are supported by the strongest evidence that they are likely to have a positive impact on both attainment and financial capability.
