Money management help for apprentices and trainees

31-Mar-2015

Apprentices, trainees and other VET students keen to improve their money management skills now have access to an online training resource developed by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC). 

Developed with assistance from the Australian Tax Office, Group Training Australia, Fair Work Building and Construction, Bendigo Kangan Institute and Innovation and Business Skills Australia, ASIC's Be MoneySmart resource covers five topics:
* Saving, budgeting and spending
* Personal tax
* Superannuation
* Debt management
* Insurance.

ASIC's Be MoneySmart resource can be used for accredited training as part of the Certificate III in Financial Services (FNS3011) or for general money management skills development programs. Assessors and trainers need not be topic experts.

To support learning, each module is accompanied by a student workbook with activities and an assessor/trainer guide. Students can complete any or all of the modules.

'ASIC's Be MoneySmart resource is the next step in helping Australians of all ages and at different stages of life make confident and informed financial decisions', said ASIC Chairman, Greg Medcraft.
'Developing good money habits will not only benefit trade students during their training, but support them throughout their future careers. Making smart decisions about money is invaluable for those students who go on to be self-employed or employ others.     

The new resource is also available as a package for training organisations to include on their learning management system under a free licence with simple reporting requirements.

ASIC's Be MoneySmart is available free of charge at www.moneysmart.gov.au/teaching
