Tenner develops young people’s financial capability

Tenner Challenge supports schools to develop the financial capability of young people by helping them understand the important role money plays in business and our everyday lives. Participation in the Tenner Challenge teaches young people to manage money well and make wise financial choices for their business, while at the same time equipping them the knowledge, skills and confidence to responsibly manage their own money now and in the future.

Tenner Challenge supports a range of financial education learning outcomes from the Financial Education Planning Framework, including:

  • Making financial decisions: I understand that my concept of value for money may be affected by my personal preferences and attitudes to factors such as buying local, fair trade and ethical trading.
  • Planning and budgeting: I can plan and budget for my current and future saving and spending, and show I can take a pro-active approach to managing my money by tracking my finance and adapting my plans if my circumstances change.
  • Personal and economic links with the wider world: I understand some of the social, moral, ethical and environmental implications of my financial decisions and those made by government, charities and businesses.
