The course encourages students to become responsible borrowers and sensible savers, and to appreciate the need for financial planning throughout their life. It prepares them for further study by developing the core skills of critical analysis and evaluation, verbal communication (through classroom discussion) and written communication.
This greater understanding of financial planning can support entry to university on finance and banking courses and a wide range of other disciplines.
