Equipping students for the future
At the heart of Keep The Cash! is the idea of personal responsibility.
We help young people to understand that it is the responsibility of everyone as an individual to make their own plans and to ensure that they are sustainable.
We encourage students to match their aspirations with their ability to fund that lifestyle, highlighting the importance of employment as the means to build a self-sustaining, independent adult life.
This generation of students faces some major challenges, and whatever career path they choose, it is imperative that they have the skills and knowledge to manage their lifelong relationship with finance.
Keep the Cash! is the best thing I’ve seen for improving functional maths skills, collaborative working, communication skills and teaching pupils to analyse and evaluate situations and reflect effectively on their findings.

This means much more than making individual financial choices – which are entirely personal matters – and is about equipping students with a practical set of skills and knowledge which they can use to manage their lives.

Keep The Cash! addresses the needs of the new National Curriculum at Key Stage 4 and 5. It delivers a range of learning outcomes that cover financial education (including financial capability and economic well-being), careers and employability, citizenship, functional maths and functional English.
Keep The Cash! also succeeds in engaging students of all abilities, from a very wide range of backgrounds, because it makes the learning relevant to their own lives.
The skills that pupils develop while taking part in Keep The Cash! provide the foundation for their lifelong relationship with finance. It gets them to start thinking critically about their own financial arrangements and plans, encouraging them to be active, rather than passive, in their own financial lives. It also demonstrates to them the inter-connectedness of education, employment, personal finance, housing and their aspirations.
Keep The Cash! demonstrates the key principles that underpin financial literacy, enabling young people to make smart choices about their finances regardless of the banking arrangements or financial methods that they choose.
It is an engaging education programme that receives universal support from parents, governors and the students themselves. Get in touch now to find out more about how Keep The Cash! can benefit your pupils.
