How can financial education in schools help tackle financial exclusion?

22 November 2016

Ofsted and the PSHE Association give evidence to the Select Committee on Financial Exclusion in a session that considers how promoting and embedding financial exclusion into education might help to combat the issue of financial exclusion.


Tuesday 22 November, Committee Room 2A, Palace of Westminster

At 10.40am

  • Jenny Barksfield, Deputy Chief Executive and Senior Subject Specialist, PSHE Association
  • Adrian Lyons, National Lead for economics, business and enterprise, Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills (Ofsted)

Possible questions

  • Are you aware of good practices in financial education in schools that could be rolled out more broadly?
  • Do you have a sense of how the teaching of financial education varies across the secondary sector, for example in academies, free schools, foundation schools and the independent sector?
  • How can Further Education colleges help to deliver financial education and develop financial capability?
  • Who should fund financial education in schools? Are current levels of funding sufficient?
