We believe the economy, how it operates, and how it is changing, are areas young people should learn about.

Through our award winning programmes on financial education, we’re supporting young people in understanding this key area of democratic life.

In 2012 we partnered with FTI Consulting to create a unique employee volunteering programme focusing on economics and in particular the global financial crisis.

The programme aims to improve young people’s understanding of economics by getting experts from FTI Consulting to volunteer in the classroom to facilitate engaging and interactive sessions with young people. The programme has proved to be extremely successful, with 93% of the young people stating that the programme has improved their understanding of basic economic terms and concepts.

Over the past year the programme has developed to focus on Brexit and the possible implications that leaving the EU might have on the UK’s economy.
