Economic well-being - Non-statutory programme of study for KS3

PSHE: Economic well-being and financial capability 2007 (non-statutory) programme of study for Key Stage 3

This document outlines the programme of study for the Economic well-being and financial capability aspect of the PHSEE natinal curriculum.

The PHSEE programme of education for economic well-being and financial capability aims to help pupils acquire the knowledge, skills and attributes to make the most of changing opportunities both in learning and work. Through their learning and experiences inside and outside school, pupils begin to understand the nature of the world of work, the function of business, and its contribution to the local, national and even international  economies.

Education for economic well-being and financial capability can help pupils see the relevance of what they learn in school to their future lives. They may become more fully aware of changing career opportunities and develop the knowledge and skills to make informed decisions about which learning programmes to take.

Pupils can learn to be enterprising through this area of study. They develop the ability to  respond positively to change, and create and implement new ideas and ways of doing things. They will hopefully learn how to make and act on reasonable risk/reward assessments and develop a ‘can-do’ attitude and the drive to make ideas happen.
