  • Empowering: your trainers learn to manage their own money to be able to train your clients and practise training during the workshop – includes a test to identify key learning points that participants have not understood by day 2.

Do the target groups that your organisation helps struggle with debts and financial difficulties? Does your staff find it difficult to help them be less vulnerable? Are you looking for practical and engaging ways to improve your target groups’ situation which are immediately applicable and connected to their daily lives? 

Course objective: 
Participants understand the importance of managing money and the main tools to better control expenses and debt and to save (budget, tracking, expense categories, goals setting, spending limit…). They identify the challenges of becoming financially literate, especially the behaviour and social parts. They apply these tools to better manage their own money and thus be able to explain them to others.  They experience training examples and awareness builders as participants and as facilitators. They can run a participatory training and short awareness sessions on financial education for their low income clients and analyse what methods would best empower their target groups. They can assess their clients' main financial issues, choose what training sessions would be most relevant to their clients and adapt examples. They understand how to set simple impact indicators to measure the impact of their financial literacy programme. They can use training examples straight away once back to their organisation office. Participants are enthusiastic about Financial Education and how it can help alleviate poverty; they become long term actors of Financial Education in their own organisation.
