Never has it been so important to ensure that future generations are confident and capable of managing their financial affairs in an increasingly complex economy.
WA partnership has extensive experience in the field of financial education having been involved since 1999 as part of a lobbying group campaigning for the inclusion of financial education into the curriculum. Since then much has happened to improve the landscape in financial education and through our association with pfeg (personal finance education group) we have made and continue to make a significant contribution in this area.
