Over the years MABS has delivered many money management education programmes in partnership with other organisations. We have combined our experience and skillsets to give a unique and tailored response to a defined need.
What is involved in the education programme?
MABS programme–based work involves a structured approach where we co-design and deliver content to be delivered over a number of sessions. This gives learners an opportunity to apply what they have learnt over time. Learners can see for themselves that they have developed new skills over the course of the programme. We have delivered these programmes in face-to-face sessions and also digitally. Currently, all of our delivery is online.
Who is the education programme for?
MABS target group is low-income households. In this very broad group, we know that many people may be more at risk of financial exclusion. Learning about the MABS approach to money management may help develop skills and knowledge and help learners to access financial services and affordable credit. A key goal of all of our educational work in MABS is to empower learners to exercise their rights as consumers of financial services and products.
Get in touch
MABS aims to be as responsive as possible to all requests for partnership work on education programmes. However, developing tailored content for programmes is resource intensive so we have to ensure we are able to deliver.
