The House of Commons Education Committee will examine the current state of financial education in England and consider what steps need to be taken to ensure its delivery is improved, that schools and colleges are more confident in its application, and that pupils and students are better equipped for a fast-changing financial and economic world.
The Committee will explore what we should be teaching young people about money, where financial education should sit within the curriculum, and whether the provision of financial education should be extended to primary schools and post-16 education.
