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.
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.
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.
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!
An overview of the relevant and current assets tweens are likely to own today with a focus on improving their situation now.
We look at some of the different types of debt products available and how to avoid, minimise or reduce debt.
The course is made up of 5 programmes including 27 lessons - drip-fed to students every two days. It’s a structured learning experience with each lesson taking on average 5-10 mins to complete. If challenges are included then the time commitment to complete will be extra.
