Financial Literacy in Marginalised Communities: Conference/workshop on tools to improve financial literacy

Indsendt af Kelsea Mucherino 1 måned 2 dage siden

Mandag 28 september 2020 til Onsdag 30 september 2020

The Financial Literacy in Marginalised Communities (FLIMCO) project aims to increase the financial literacy of marginalised, refugee and NEET youth communities who are at an increased disadvantage in day-to-day life due to their comparatively low level of financial literacy.

We aim to provide these groups with the support and training they need to bridge the gap in their skills, knowledge and attitudes towards financial literacy. Throughout the project, we developed 3 outputs which will be presented during 3 conferences/workshops over the course of 3 days:

  1. Handbook/Guide on the Relationship Between Financial Literacy and the Cultural Aspects of Marginalised Communities
  2. Framework for Financial Literacy Curriculum
  3. e-Course on Financial Literacy for Marginalised Communities

Each event will take place from 11:00 - 13:00 on the 28th, 29th, and 30th of September. Every day there will be a presentation on the overall project including successes and challenges, a discussion on the future of financial literacy, workshops where participants can use each output, and a Q&A session. 

Invited guests will be representatives of organisations that have influence and are wellestablished within the VET and Adult learning and training sector, locally, regionally and nationally, including teachers, trainers, academic directors and organisation executives (but all are welcome!). It will also include high-up members, leaders and well-respected heads of the target group communities.

It is planned that besides VET and Adult Education authorities in the learning and teaching sector, additional high level representatives of other educational sectors will be invited to attend, from educational organisations, as well as NGOs and charities who have a bond with the target groups.

Behandlet tema:
The aim of the event will be to present the outputs of the project to ensure their future sustainability, and confirm the importance of financial literacy amongst marginalised groups. The objective of the event will be to raise awareness amongst VET and Adult Education authorities that the use of financial literacy curricula, increases the capacity of marginalised communities to be able to develop professionally, challenge cultural boundaries, and that a financial literacy curriculum does not need to be long-winded or complicated to be able to deliver a high quality vet course, whilst adapting to the changing needs and requirements of learners.
Forventede læringsresultater: 
It is expected that stakeholders relevant to the project's aims and objectives will become aware of the newly-developed tools that are available to support the financial literacy of the marginalised communities they work with.
