Financial Literacy course designed for New Zealand tweens who are set on smart financial futures

COURSE CONTENT OUTLINE

The Squeeze the Day New Zealand financial literacy online course delivers a structured and consistent learning and educational experience across 5 programmes. It provides tweens with the foundations for a great financial future and a healthy approach to money management. Each programme includes a number of lessons and exercises which are drip-fed to students every two days.

#01 Getting Started

Understanding the basics of money management is where it all starts. We set tweens up with a simple understanding of the value of money and why earning and saving is imperative.

#02 Money IN

Tweens will have a greater awareness and appreciation of how to maximise their earning ability. We cover the options available to them when it comes to earning money and how to go about it.

#03 Money OUT

We reinforce the timeless message ‘Spend less than you earn’ through a series of exercises all designed to get tweens thinking about how to decrease expenses on a daily basis. Become smarter about spending and savvier about saving!

#04 What you OWN

An overview of the relevant and current assets tweens are likely to own today with a focus on improving their situation now.

#05 What you OWE

We look at some of the different types of debt products available and how to avoid, minimise or reduce debt.
