The Government recognises the importance of financial education, as reflected in the draft national curriculum programmes of study that are currently available for consultation.
Although we do not prescribe the content of initial teacher training courses, providers must ensure that their programmes enable all trainees to achieve qualified teacher status by demonstrating that they meet the appropriate standards. This includes preparing trainees to deliver the appropriate curriculum for their chosen subject and phase.
School leaders are best placed to decide what arrangements are needed to support their staff to deliver the new national curriculum.
Teaching school alliances can provide additional support. within these clusters, teaching schools will be able to respond to the needs of each school, and if they identify a particular need for teacher or leadership development, for example with regards to financial education, they will be able to respond appropriately.
