The Edufinet Project, promoted by Unicaja Banco and Fundación Unicaja, has organized the II Course on Financial Education for 4th year students of secondary education (Educación Secundaria Obligatoria, ESO), so as to promote an easy to understand financial education, based on daily life elements, to provide students with the skills required to use them.

 

The course has been divided into three sessions of one hour each, where basic economic and financial concepts have been explained. It has been given in the schools Sagrada Familia and Rosario Moreno, in the city of Malaga.

     

The sessions have covered the main concepts of the financial products and services which are most popular among young people, as well as the family budget and basic economic and financial indicators, analyzing the tools that are required to make decisions on those topics. Students have taken a test on general financial knowledge before and after the course, to assess their level.

 

As in the rest of the Edufinet activities, the goal is to provide the students with a clear view of the world of finance, putting the stress on the different products that they use or that they may use. In summary, it intends to raise awareness on the importance of acquiring a certain level of knowledge to face the challenges that citizens may encounter.
