About Us

pfeg (Personal Finance Education Group) is the UK’s leading organisation helping schools to plan and teach children and young people how to manage their money now and in the future. A registered charity, it values its independence and integrity.

What we are trying to achieve

pfeg’s vision is a society in which all children and young people have the skills, knowledge and confidence to manage their money well, now and in the future.
pfeg’s mission is to support education providers in giving children and young people the skills, knowledge and confidence to manage money.

We do this by:

• Influencing policy and practice
• Supporting educators in teaching money matters with confidence
• Providing education resources that will engage and inspire

What we do

•Work with schools - pfeg delivers a range of free resources and support to make teaching money management easy. We know that each school, academy or college is unique and needs to find its own solution to meeting the requirements of its learners. We believe that trained teachers provide the most effective route to young people becoming financially capable as they know their pupils best and understand how to integrate personal finance education into lessons.

•Influence education policy and improving practice - pfeg works with Westminster and Whitehall, opinion formers and key bodies to campaign for consistent, high quality personal finance education.

•Work in partnership to improve the quality and quantity of personal finance education - pfeg receives cross sector support from education, business and government. Innovative projects enable young people to learn in ways that are relevant and engaging, supporting teachers to become more confident and competent. The pfeg Quality Mark ensures that teachers can use resources, sure in the knowledge that they will meet educational objectives.

Why are we needed?

The case for young people to leave school able to be in control of their money and to plan for the future has never been stronger. Children and young people encounter money earlier and earlier, spending and saving their pocket money, mobile phones, pre-paid cards and part time jobs. Crucial decisions have to be taken about student loans, getting a job or living independently. We owe it to the next generation to invest in their future.
