Free Financial Education for Teachers and Lecturers

Target audience - Primary School Pupil, Secondary S1 to S3 (11-14 year old), Secondary S4 to S6 (14-18 year old), College
Teachers Financial Education

Not only do we offer this to your young people, we can also provide a session for your staff which can be delivered as part of your Staff Well-being Programme. This can be covered in an inservice environment or at the end of a school day as part of a CPD programme.

Laura Pike specialises in providing no-obligation advice to help meet the financial needs of educational professionals. As a former teacher of 20 years and now a financial adviser, she is aware of the many life events that may have affected her own pension and how understanding the basics of this can be challenging.

Maternity leave, ill-health, stepping down from a leadership role, as well as striving to take early retirement are all reasons why we may have questions regarding our pensions and how that may affect us in the future.

Typical areas she can assist in are:

• Retirement planning – whether you are starting out or getting out, understanding the basics. What does it all mean?
• Discuss ways to ensure your family is protected in the event of premature death
• Consider the impact of ill-health, how it could affect you and your family now and in the future.
• Discuss and implement ways to increase your retirement benefits
• Review how savings beyond retirement planning can be maximised and kept as tax efficient as possible

Having already had a stream of successful sessions in North - East Schools, Laura already feels she is already making a difference to teachers’ understanding of when retirement planning should begin. It is never too early! This session is targeted at teachers from their probation year to retirement and beyond….

The value of an investment with St.James’s Place will be directly linked to the performance of the funds you select and the value can therefore go down as well as up. You may get back less than you invested. The levels and bases of taxation, and reliefs from taxation, can change at any time. The value of any tax relief depends on individual circumstances.

Free Financial Education in Secondary Schools and Colleges.

Target audience - Secondary S1 to S3 (11-14 year old), Secondary S4 to S6 (14-18 year old), College
Having been a teacher in Schools all over Scotland and the North-East and now a Financial Adviser I am passionate about the growth of Financial Education in Schools and Colleges.

At Alan Rutherford Wealth Management Ltd, A Partner Practice as part of St. James’s Place Wealth Management, especially at this time, we are keen to support the Financial Education of young people and we would like to offer your school the chance to receive a programme we have created alongside teachers and financial education specialists.

Financial Education is a crucial area of learning which has a heavy impact on the future of young people. For this reason, we have a range of programmes available.
Our sessions are interactive and engaging – we only work with class sizes of up to 35 students at one time . Because of the current restrictions many of our modules can still be delivered remotely. The programme itself does not have to be done in full.
It can be done in separate modules. (see below).
• We can visit locations across the UK dependent on current restrictions – this can be run remotely
• These programmes are free and we will provide everything for the sessions – including high quality resources and professional PowerPoint presentations
• We run the sessions, with teacher support in the classroom
• The feedback we receive from our sessions is always positive, and we will analyse the impact of every session for you to see.

Secondary school programme
We have two modular programmes for secondary schools, which we have been delivering for several years – one for 13-15 year olds and the other for 16-18 year olds or beyond.
We can tailor the secondary school programme to work for you and best meet your desired curriculum outcomes. Please let us know what areas you would be most interested in from the available modules. Each module is designed to last one to one and a half hours.
We will endeavour to meet the needs of each school, college and their young people as we respect the diversity and constraints that each school has.
As part of the programme, we measure pupil development from the start to the end of the day; we will pass the results back to you for your own quality control and use in official reports.


We have received some fantastic feedback from the students and teachers who have completed the programmes. Here are just a few examples:
“Today has really opened my eyes to money and the importance of it.”
“It was very interesting learning all about loans, debts etc. I learnt about situations where families go on holiday and need help paying for it over time. It was an amazing day!”
“The teachers were very friendly and open and they made me understand money issues clearly.”
“I really enjoyed it. The activities were fun and I learnt a lot, which will benefit me in the future. Thank you!”
“Today’s session gave the students the opportunity to learn about a very important subject, money management, which otherwise is not normally covered in our curriculum. They have learnt valuable lessons from today and were engaged throughout.”

I do hope that this opportunity is of interest to you. We understand how busy the school timetable is, so we are very happy to discuss the session in more detail and think how best we can support you. Please do "register your interest" and we can answer any questions and set up a meeting.
