Statement from Catherine Winter, Managing Director, Financial Capability and Community Outreach

Update: 06 July 2020

Dear Colleagues,

We hope that you, your colleagues, and students are keeping safe and well at this time.

Thank you

It has continued to be a very busy time in schools and colleges and we wanted to say thank you to all of those centres who have provided Centre Assessed Grades for their students expecting to receive exam results this summer.

We have had a tremendous response from all of our centres, and there has only been a limited number of centres that we have had to make further contact with. These centres have all been contacted individually – please do not be concerned if you have not heard from us, there is nothing additional that is required from your centre.

Continued support to our centres

Although the end of the summer term is nearly upon us, we know that this term has not been like any other experienced before in schools and colleges. Some schools have re-opened partially to some year groups, others have not been able to open at all. Whatever happens today, tomorrow or during the forthcoming academic year, please be reassured that we are here to continually support you and ensure that your students are able to continue to learn financial education and achieve successful outcomes in this.

Additional free learning materials

Earlier in the year we provided some resources from a previous qualification. We have been able to access further resources and have now made available an additional three units for you and your students. You can access these resources here and use them to provide work for students during home learning, or to produce summer activities in readiness for further study from September onwards.

I wish you all well. I hope that the next few weeks of the current academic year run smoothly for you and enable you to successfully put in place and deliver any activities that you have planned for your students.

Catherine Winter

Managing Director of Financial Capability
