CAP responds to an inquiry on the challenges facing delivery of financial education within schools

CAP responded to the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Financial Education for Young People’s inquiry into the barriers facing schools as they deliver financial education. In our response we have suggested several ways that financial education can be improved in schools to provide more consistent education, as well as better mitigate inequalities in financial capability across different households. While improving financial education within schools is important in improving financial wellbeing across the population, CAP points to the importance in life-long financial education in supporting efforts to improve financial capability both for school-aged children and beyond.
