All MABS money management education resources are available free of charge to learners and participants in education programmes. We believe that good money management is a life skill, and we are committed to helping everyone in society develop this skill. We take great care with the development of our resources, and ensure the greatest possible quality in the production, dissemination and delivery of our programmes. 

Lors d’une conférence de presse le 12 mai 2016, le ministre de l’Education nationale, de l’Enfance et de la Jeunesse, Claude Meisch, et le directeur de l’Ecole de la 2e chance, Carlo Welfring, ont présenté une nouvelle formation de 2e voie de qualification qui sera offerte à partir de la rentrée 2016-2017.

Avec la mise en place de cette formation, l’Education nationale offre aux personnes non diplômées une seconde chance d’obtenir une certification reconnue et d’accéder aux études supérieures (DAES).

Research released today revealed that 89% of respondents would prefer if banks used less financial jargon and more plain English in their communications. The research, commissioned by the National Adult Literacy Agency (NALA) in partnership with the EBS Building Society, also found that over a fifth of respondents would switch financial institution if they provided their information in a more user-friendly manner.

Financial jargon such as APR, equity and compound interest are difficult at the best of times to understand but for somebody with low literacy levels it is a real barrier to money matters.  We have been involved in many projects to address this issue. They include conducting research, publishing a plain English guide to financial terms, supporting a series of awareness raising events and publishing tuition material, all kindly sponsored by EBS Building Society.

Op verzoek van Wijzer in geldzaken heeft Motivaction International B.V. in 2015 een 2-meting uitgevoerd naar financieel gedrag onder de Nederlandse bevolking (18-80 jaar). In 2013 heeft Motivaction dit onderzoek voor het eerst uitgevoerd en in 2014 heeft een herhalingsmeting plaatsgevonden.

De resultaten van de 0-meting in 2013 lieten zien dat aan financieel gedrag drie dimensies ten grondslag liggen: management van geld, financieel plannen en bewust beslissingen maken ten aanzien van financiële producten.

Plain English Training

Learn how to write in plain English this year.

What is plain English?

Plain English is a style of writing and layout that the intended reader can understand after a single reading. It will help you clarify what you’re trying to say and, as a result, help your reader get your message exactly as you intended. Presenting information in plain English includes using suitable words, adopting a direct style, avoiding unnecessary jargon and designing your written information to make it easier to follow.

A few days ago the National EPALE service organised a Lifelong Learning café. One of the workshops was in fact dedicated to the Maltese EPALE Ambassadors. A presentation was given by the project manager for Malta and I was inspired to create an activity that can increase the awareness about EPALE whilst also encouraging adult learners to conduct their own research and learn how to use the EPALE platform.
