A Financial Future Should Not Be Left To Chance!

If we are not preparing our youth for their financial future we are not giving them the education they will need for the future!

The Benefit

Courses and resources to meet many wellbeing needs.

Love the flexibility

Glenn

These courses can be used in many ways in our charity work. One-on-one with client families or individuals within the family, and we can also invite a group together to go through the work. It's superb that all the hard work has been done!

Multiple learning areas in school

Milly

What a blessing! So many new resources, kid friendly, with video inclusions. Wow. There is not much out there anymore, and lot of existing financial life skill resources are quite stale. This is new, dynamic and useful across lots of curricular and extra-curricula programs. Can't wait to use.

Financial services

We have been talking about providing financial educaiton for our clients for years. It is always in the too hard basket just because we don't have the time. This resource has taken the time excuse away. We will run some of these courses ourselves with our clients, but we will also sponsor some of these courses for our clients. Thanks TWA.

It is so hard to get kids 'invested' in this learning. These courses and resources are mostly bite-size, which is a plus. They include video segments which is also a plus. While my kids don't welcome my participation, they get it anyway. I sit through a course topic with them every now and then. 20-30 minutes very well spent!

FAQ

  • What are the different types of courses?

    There are two broad types of courses - facilitated and self-education.

  • What is a facilitated course?

    A facilitated course has been developed to help those who have a passion, interest or responsibility to support the wellbeing of teenagers. This type of course is constructed on the premise that there is a facilitator at the front of a room, guiding one or more students through the topics of the course, using a data projector or smart board. It is the facilitator who will login to access the course.

  • Who is a facilitator?

    In most cases a facilitator will be a teacher or teacher assistant in a school situation. But a facilitator could also be a boarding school supervisor, a parent who wants to supervise aspects of their child's financial education, a home-schooling parent, a youth worker aligned to a government department or non-profit organisation, a financial service professional supporting clients with teenage children, a student union representative, a union delegate helping young apprentices, a tutor, a university student support worker, and so on.

  • Is there flexibility within the course for facilitators?

    Some courses have multiple topics and lessons. Facilitators may choose to do all or just one of the topics. They also have the choice of doing all, some or none of the activities within each course topic. We aim to give the facilitator as much choice as possible.

  • What is a self-education course?

    As the name suggests, these courses are for young people to subscribe to and do in their own time. If under the age 18, students may subscribe with a personal username and email address. We expect that students under the age of 18 will have discussed any self-education course enrolment with their parents or caregivers. For students in a school situation wishing to access a self-education course, they will need to check the policy and procedures of the school regarding use of school usernames and email addresses.

  • What information is collected?

    We collect a username and email address for the purpose of maintaining a record of courses being undertaken and the awarding of named certificates. Any payment information should relate to that of a parent or caregiver over the age of 18.

  • What are the privacy provisions?

    It is important to note, that there is NO student information collected through the facilitator model. It is a facilitator's username and email address that is collected as part of the subscription process. This is necessary to maintain vigilance over security, as well as support for the facilitator. Through facilitated courses we do NOT collect any student information. We make the assumption that facilitators are over the age of 18.

  • Is there any advertising within the online courses?

    We do not advertise or promote any entity within any course? We do however, where necessary, point students to various external websites and links if there is a purpose of educational learning. We do want students to be critically aware of the 'real-world', and this does require looking at 'real-world' enterprises, media etc. Any sponsors or partners are acknowledged outside the course content.

  • Who are your partners?

    Our partners are listed on a company website. www.thewealthacademy.com.au
