Students of Secondary Education (Educación Secundaria Obligatoria, ESO) of the Sagrada Familia School in Malaga have attended the III Course on Financial Education, given by Unicaja through the Edufinet Project.

 

The goal of this training activity is to promote financial education among young people, by teaching in an easy to understand manner the basic economic and financial concepts, in order to facilitate their use in their daily life and when making financial decisions in the future.

 

The Edufinet course, promoted by Unicaja Banco and Fundación Unicaja, has been divided into three sessions of one hour each, where the keys to understand finances and the economy have been explained.

 

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 Project activities, the goal of this course is to enhance literacy on economics and finances, putting the stress on daily life elements, so as to provide Secondary Education students with the skills required for their use. It also intends to raise awareness on the importance of acquiring a certain level of knowledge to face the challenges that they may encounter during their lives.

 

Edufinet Project, a pioneering initiative

 

The Edufinet Project has been operative, through an Internet portal aimed at the general public, since the end of 2007, although its development began in 2005. In addition to more than ten business organizations and institutions, 14 universities participate in this programme. All the previous has made Unicaja, one of the first institutions in Spain to launch an initiative of this type, to be one of the most active agents in this field. This work has been recognized with several awards.

 

Since it was created, more than 146,600 people have participated in the different conferences, workshops and lectures developed by Edufinet, of which 108,000 have participated through the Conferences on Financial Education for Young People.

 

Regarding the website www.edufinet.com, which offers systemic and practical information in a question-answer format and where no previous knowledge is required to get the most of the contents, it has registered more than 7.8 million visits, with consultations and access from nearly 180 countries.

 

The Edufinet Project has other two specific portals: the first one, on financial education for young people (Edufinext), and the second one, addressed to business owners and entrepreneurs (Edufiemp).
