National Consumer and Financial Literacy Framework, 2011
This Framework is for teachers and principals; it is also highly relevant to the work of curriculum developers and curriculum support staff in state and territory government and non-government education sectors, pre-service teacher educators and teacher professional associations.
The National Framework was revised in 2011 in consultation with representatives from each education jurisdiction, the Catholic and Independent sectors, departments of Fair Trading selected teacher professional associations and the Australian Securities and Investments Commission.
The endorsed MCEECDYA National Consumer and Financial Literacy Framework (2011) is being used to inform the development of a complete MoneySmart Teacher Package (the Package) linked to the phased development of the Australian Curriculum. The Package will include professional learning (online and PDF), units of work, guidance and support for parents and other online resources. The Package linked to Phases 1 and 2 of the Australian Curriculum will be trialled in 2012/13 and available on the MoneySmart Teaching website from mid 2013.
