Do you wish you had more money but don’t know where to start? Or do you want to learn how to make money from investing? Our online, six-month course will teach you essential financial skills from a personal finance and investment expert. How does the course work? The course is online, can be started at any time and is self-paced to fit around existing commitments. The course material is delivered via your online account on our website. Each week consists of a video to watch, followed by a practical (but theoretical!) task. Together, the video and task should take an hour to complete. We are a licensed D of E Skills Section Approved Activity Provider (AAP). Once you’ve completed the course, we’ll complete your personalised assessor’s report. What does the course cover? In the first part of the course, you’ll learn a range of money management skills, including how to: • Be a savvy shopper that finds the best price. • Earn some extra money from a side hustle. • Choose the best bank accounts and the basics of budgeting. • Buy a property and own a car. • Save money on everyday costs. The second part of the course covers the basics for buying and selling shares. You’ll learn: • Why share prices move and how to make a profit. • How to create a balanced portfolio. • How to research and analyse shares. • The six-week investment challenge: you'll pick shares and funds and set up a virtual portfolio. You’ll review how they perform and work out the final profit or loss.
