A new programme designed to help adults around the UK understand their finances more fully has been officially launched in London.
Politicians have backed the ifs School of Finance’s ‘Programme in Personal Financial
Planning’ and its introduction has been marked by a ceremony at the House of Commons.
It is hoped that the programme will be offered by adult education centres around the country and help thousands people become debt free and avoid future financial problems.
Noorjahan Rashid, from Tower Hamlets in London commented: “I have only been taking this course for four weeks but have found it life changing.”
“I know about mortgages and interest rates and all sorts of financial things…it’s really given me confidence,” she added.
Many pf the UK’s indebted consumers could have been disappointed recently as the Bank of England opted not top reduce the cost of borrowing.
