Talk Learn Do Training for professionals who work with parents

Did you know that nearly a third of parents say they never or rarely discuss where money comes from with their children?

79% of children would turn to their parents for money advice. This shows the importance of financial education at home

The Money and Pensions Service hugely successful programme, ‘Talk Learn Do: Parents Kids and Money’ demonstrates that supporting parents to develop the confidence and skills to talk to and teach their children about money can positively impact on the financial wellbeing  of both parents and children. Since 2016, we have worked with over 1,500 professionals across the UK to deliver TLD to parents and carers they support. We are now looking to upskill more professionals so they can deliver Talk Learn Do to parents they work with.

What is Talk Learn Do (TLD)?

TLD is a facilitator led group session that encourages parents of 3–11-year-olds to talk to their children about money and create opportunities for their children to experience managing it. The programme provides parents with tools, ideas, and fun activities to help include money in everyday conversations and activities.

With the increase in personal finance related news and ongoing cost of living pressures, there continues to be a demand for financial wellbeing work with parents and training for professionals who support them

We are working with Campaign for Learning and Quaker Social Action to expand our training programme for professionals who support parents across the UK. The training is free and open to organisations across the UK. Each organisation will initially be allocated one training space on a first come first served basis. Further spaces to be allocated if available.
