Our 20 Centres of Excellence

During 2013 we embarked upon a ground-breaking new partnership with the UK’s leading financial education charity pfeg (Personal Finance Education Group) to transform 20 schools in some of the country’s most financially disadvantaged areas into Centres of Excellence in financial education. The initiative will give up to 18,000 school children access to a life-changing financial literacy programme, helping them to gain the skills, knowledge and confidence they need to be able to make the right financial decisions and manage their money well into adulthood. Our Experian volunteers can support teachers in the classroom. And to target this support, schools are being identified using Experian data, to spot areas of the country with low levels of financial literacy and use of financial services such as bank and savings accounts. Schools will also be offered the use of our Values, Money and Me free online resource.
