Making learning more engaging with
Learning through play and hands-on activites is one of the most efficient and fastest ways to develop and instil new skills and knowledge.
RedSTART's Learning & Resources
We are proud to introduce RedSTART, a financial literacy and entrepreneurship education programme which aims to build confidence, drive and ambition in young people. Co-founded in 2012 by Investment Director of St. James’s Place, Robert Gardner, RedSTART is on an inspiring mission to help children worldwide to learn how to budget, save, invest and give back.
RedSTART’s Funsize lessons are designed for children aged 8-12 and can be delivered by either parents or teachers. The lessons are designed to teach primary school children the key principles of money - how to earn it, keep it and grow it - in a way that’s fun and stays with them.
Games are used to illustrate essential money management concepts, including:
To play the games, children need their Balance Sheet which is where they keep track of their money. During the games, they need to write down all the money coming in and going out as modelled in this guide.
To support delivery, RedSTART has produced a glossary of words and a series of YouTube videos. Links to these can be found on the lesson guides.
