For teachers

The ACL regulators recognise the importance of having confident young people who are aware of their consumer and financial rights. Through the early teaching of consumer and financial literacy, Australian school students will have the opportunity to develop sound consumer and financial knowledge, skills and behaviours from an early age that will equip them to make informed choices as consumers and confidently uphold their consumer rights when problems arise.

To assist in this goal ACL regulators have come together to deliver a set of resources for teachers to assist in teaching consumer and financial literacy in Australian Schools for Years 5 to 10.

The selected resources for Years 5 to 10 have been mapped to the National Consumer and Financial Literacy Framework and the Australian curriculum.

The suite of national curriculum mapping documents for Years 5 to 10 have been created to help teachers identify how they can incorporate a selected number of consumer and financial literacy materials into their curriculum programs.
