Consumer and Retail Investments – Financial Literacy, ASIC

As the world wrestles with market volatility and waning economic confidence, a financial literacy strategy is being implemented throughout the Australian school system. The Consumer and Financial Literacy Framework includes detailed guides on topics such as budgeting, banking, credit cards, mobile phone plans and superannuation. The Framework, to be integrated into all K–10 curriculums, applies across English, Maths, Science, Civics and Citizenship and ICT.
