Learning about Finance in Schools

For the past week we’ve had an extra helping hand at Solomon’s headquarters, due to college student Jodie, who has been doing her work experience with us. During her time with us, she has been creating market research for both her college (and us!), by gathering data on what adults (with financial experience) wish they had been taught in schools. Our working assumption is that things like borrowing, interest rates, pensions and budgeting are likely to be the top-of-mind topics, but of course we may be surprised by the responses… Over to Jodie –

I have been assigned a really interesting project to research and evaluate how people feel about ‘learning about finance’ whilst at school.

We have put together a questionnaire to get opinions around this and following the analysis of the data we collect, we intend to report the results on the Solomon’s website and send a copy to local schools and the media, and potentially our MP and the Department of Education.

Please could I ask you to give up two minutes of your time to answer the short questionnaire for me so that this project is meaningful and worthwhile – I would be very grateful for this!

Thanks, Jodie
