Managing your money could help you.
The module has a range of interactive features, including:
- short film clips
- a password-creating exercise
- animation about safety when using a cash machine (ATM)
- a virtual, interactive ATM to practice some basic skills for using an ATM
- information on debt management and recovery
- information on reasonable expenditure
- information on budgeting
- printable information sheets and worksheets to help manage budgets
- further links and references
Examples throughout the module show how important looking after money is. For example, you might be spending more on a social life than you can really afford or you might be looking to spend less if you are planning to start a family.
The course consists of activities, videos and links to further information to show how you can help yourself in looking after your money.
