A teacher is doing an activity with some students in a classroom.

The department has worked with learning resource platform ClickView to develop a series of animated videos explaining key financial concepts, to help you teach your students about financial literacy.

Financial literacy is taught as part of the Victorian Curriculum through the economics, business and mathematics learning areas.

Financial literacy education provides students with the knowledge, skills and understanding necessary to:

  • make informed decisions about personal consumer and financial choices
  • understand how their consumer and financial decisions affect others, the community and the broader environment
  • learn how to manage financial risks and rewards.

The financial literacy videos can be accessed via the ClickView platform, which is provided free to all Victorian government schools as part of the department’s Software for Connected Learners Program.

An eduPass login is required to access ClickView.
