With the course designed to cover the financial education needs of those moving on in their adult lives to employment, apprenticeships and higher education, Bobby also speaks with current GCSE student Nicola together with university graduate and now full-time employee Laura. Nicola speaks about the financial decisions involved of either moving into higher education – and where you then live after university! – or starting an apprenticeship or work experience instead. Although Laura is now financially independent, the course still offers accessible, invaluable information to make informed decisions on those financial services available and to help avoid falling into debt.

The course is fully funded by The Chartered Accountants’ Livery Charity with each of the eight sessions around three hours’ study time. The content has been refreshed and enhanced on both the new FutureLearn version, which has active mentors to encourage discussion, as well as the original OpenLearn one where it can be accessed at any time throughout the year.
