Pfeg (Personal Finance Education Group)
Personal Finance Education Group (Pfeg) awarded Gloucestershire County Council a Centre of Excellence Award for Personal Finance Education for young people, one of only three awarded nationally.
Every school in the county has benefited from our partnership with Pfeg. This has taken the form of provision of classroom activities during My Money week, and the use of resources produced in association with Pfeg, including The Price of Parenting.
Pfeg is the UK's leading finance education charity. 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 supports schools, colleges and universities by providing expert advice and high-quality educational resources that will engage and inspire. Pfeg’s work is underpinned by both government policy and independent review affirming the need for Personal Finance Education. Pfeg campaigns for consistent, quality Personal Finance Education for children and young people across the UK and shares its expert knowledge of Personal Finance Education to influence education policy.
In 2011, Gloucestershire was awarded as a Centre of Excellence for its wide-reaching work in the county on Personal Finance Education including the Price of Parenting, ‘Real Money’ and its work with all schools throughout the county.
