IT’S OVER 🙁
Our Global Money Week celebration is done and dusted. The Money101 team had a great time contributing to this important cause, and discovering what our peers around the world are doing to boost kids’ financial capability. We hope you enjoyed the content, and that you learned something useful! If you checked out one of the units and you haven’t filled in our survey yet, please take a couple of minutes to do so. It’ll really help us create the best possible learning experiences for kids (and adults!) in the future.

What did you think?
The whole Money101 team would love to know what you think about these free units. We want to improve our content so more people can get more out of it. And nothing would make our day like hearing that we’ve helped you learn something new!
These units have been prepared without taking into account your particular financial or other circumstances or objectives. Therefore, it shouldn’t be treated as investment, financial, or tax advice.
You should always assess your own circumstances and objectives. Where appropriate, consult a professional adviser before making decisions about your financial affairs. Money101 does not recommend or endorse the information or any advice contained in these units.
This module has been prepared by Money101 (Money for Life Pty Ltd). Money101 believes the information in this module is correct as at March 2017, but does not warrant the accuracy of that information. Because the finance industry changes continually, the information is to be used AS A GUIDE ONLY. Every effort is made to ensure information accuracy. That said, Money101 accepts no responsibility or liability for loss or hardship caused by errors or omissions – whether direct or indirect.
Long story short: these units are general. You might need special help, tailored to your circumstances. If you’re in financial trouble, speak to a financial professional.
What was on offer…
For Aussie kids and teens…
Save More Money, Buy Cool Stuff: Do you always spend your money too fast, and have to ask Mum or Dad for more? This unit will show you how to stop wasting your money on random crap, and start saving more money for the stuff you really care about. (Suggested ages: 10+)
Your First Ever Super Account!: Super is kinda annoying to think about when you’re just starting your first job, and all you want is cash for now. But it’s important to think about it, unless you don’t mind having a lame fun-free lifestyle when you’re older. This unit will show you what super’s all about, how it works, and why you should give a stuff. (Suggested ages: 12-18)
Starting Your First Job: Eventually, you have to stop relying on the Bank of Mum and Dad – you’ve got to get a job if you want your own money! This unit shows you what happens after you’ve landed your first job, from signing your contract to getting paid for the first time. (Suggested ages: 12-18)
For the parents…
We haven’t forgotten the parents! When it comes to getting little kids smarter about money, parents are the first (and biggest) influence. Mums and dads know it’s important to teach their kids skills and values about money. But there’s so much info out there on when and how to teach ‘lessons’ on money, it’s hard to know what’s right or where to start.
That’s why we’ve put together a handy simple guide to help get you started. It’s packed full of sensible info and tips, backed up by subject matter experts and real parents. The whole thing only takes about five minutes to go through, and you can do it on any device – mobile, tablet or computer.
