Supporting the Professional Development of Teachers
“Money and Youth: A Guide to Financial Literacy” is CFEE’s most widely distributed education resource with over 500,000 copies in circulation. Across Canada, more and more provinces are increasing financial education in their provincial curricula. At the same time, the vast majority of teachers have not had training in this subject area.
The Money and Youth book and website can help support teachers but, beyond that, there is a need for professional development support. Where and when opportunities arise for workshops for teachers, CFEE would be willing to consider support with a presenter and free resources.
If you know of such an opportunity, or would like to plan a session to help teachers enhance their background and skill in teaching financial education, please contact CFEE. We will do all that we can to try and support your efforts.
To view upcoming workshops, see the Events Section of our website at Events | Canadian Foundation for Economic Education (cfee.org). If you would be interested in working with us to organize a workshop, please contact us.
