What We Aim To Do
Work with schools and youth organisations-
Omegachain Foundation delivers a range of resources and support to make teaching ICT & money management easy. We know that each youth organisation, school, academy or college is unique and needs to find its own solution to meeting the requirements of its learners. We believe that trained teachers provide the most effective route to young people becoming financially capable as they know their pupils best and understand how to integrate ICT and personal finance education into lessons.
Influence education policy and improving practice –
Omegachain Foundation has a grassroots approach to getting entities to better understand ICT and financial mechanisms, enhance and improve their lives.
Work in partnership to improve the quality and quantity of personal finance education -
Omegachain Foundation receives cross-sector support from education, business and government. Innovative projects enable young people to learn in ways that are relevant and engaging, supporting young people to become more confident. The Omegachain Foundation Quality Mark ensures that teachers can use resources, sure in the knowledge that they will meet educational objectives.
Planning and Teaching – What is ICT and financial education?
We believe that ICT and financial education should start from an early agein schools and educational environments
ICT and personal finance education is most effective when delivered as a planned programme of learning opportunities and experiences designed to increase their ICT and financial capability of all pupils from every social and cultural background
Primary level can benefit from an introduction to ICT & money into a variety of schemes
At secondary level, increase engagement by using real life scenarios
It should include an understanding of how money affects feelings and personal well being
Children are interacting with ICT and money earlier and earlier- like mobile phones and buying online
