About Money skills for life

Covid-19 (Coronavirus) update: Due to the developments in relation to Covid-19 (Coronavirus) we will only be taking bookings for remote Money skills for life talks until further notice. 

Money skills for life is a free one-hour personal finance talk, developed by the CCPC to provide financial education to employees, with the support of their employer.  The talk covers six topics:

  • Sorting out your money
  • Saving and investing
  • Insurance
  • Borrowing money
  • Dealing with debt
  • Planning for later life

Money skills for life can be organised as a one-off talk or as part of a series of employee development and welfare events.  Talks are delivered by a CCPC trained presenter and each attendee gets a free handbook and planner to take home, which contains lots of useful information and tools to help them manage their money. You can find out more in our leaflet information for employers, or watch our short video of Money skills for life in action.

How do you book a talk?

All you have to do is make a location in your workplace available (ideally a room with PowerPoint facilities) on a date and time that suits you and make the booking through our online booking form. We do the rest!  If you have any questions, please email  or call Colin on 01-470 3615.
