on Financial Education
as a Life Skill
The post financial crisis world has notably evidenced the need for a new individual skill, financial literacy. Younger generations will face increasing financial risks, will be confronted with more sophisticated financial products than their previous generations and they are now given access to financial services and products at an ever younger age.
The term “financial literacy” in a school context is used to refer to the teaching of financial knowledge, understanding, skills, behaviours, attitudes and values which will enable students to make savvy and effective financial decisions in their daily life and when they become adults.
Against this backdrop, inclusion of financial education in the formal school curriculum is recognised as one of the most efficient and effective way to reach a whole generation on a broad scale.
The Principals' Conclave will discuss the need and importance of inclusion of financial education in school curriculum and identify issues and challenges at panel discussions comprising, school principals, teachers, senior policy makers, industry experts.
Participation in the event is FREE. Accomodation (on sharing basis) and meals would be provided by the organizers.
