Newsletter 2 - Halfway there!

A new set of financial literacy educational resources for families, individuals and children will be available for testing in April 2022.

Are you good at looking after your money? Would you or your learners like to know more about financial literacy?

Did you know increasing financial literacy skills can help people use their resources more effectively, make better financial choices and help to increase financial inclusion? *

Whether you think you are prepared to deal with the rapid changes in the financial world or not, the Money Matters project may be of interest to you!
Hello everyone! A lot has happened since May as we, in the Money Matters project, have been focusing on producing exciting educational material for both trainers and families, supported by a family learning approach to help empower people with the financial skills to cope with financial difficulties.
In particular, the biggest part of the Train-the-Parents and Train-the-Trainer material is now almost ready and we will be using the next few months to finalize it.

Regarding the new learning tools that will be produced, our 12 monthly comic strips scenarios are almost finalized and we will now be working on the production of the graphics. The digital escape rooms are currently in the design phase, our open badge micro-credentials have been selected and our online app is being developed.
As a result of the smooth implementation of the project, we will be developing the Train-the-Trainer sessions aimed at Adult Educators, which will be tested in each partner country (UK, Ireland, Portugal, Italy, Cyprus, Greece) in April 2022.
We would also like to remind you that if you or your organization are interested in being part of this free training opportunity, you could contact Mary on the following address to join our mailing list so that future newsletters will be sent to you directly:
