From start to finish the girls were focused and motivated to get involved in all aspects of the day.

It contributed to so many areas of development it is hard to know where to start. They worked collaboratively, showed determination to succeed and gain jobs, built up resilience when they found out they owed money to the bank,  and more importantly realised how far money actually goes and what they need to spend their money on. The girls loved it, they finally realised the difficult jobs their families have in balancing the books.

The work that Adam and Donal did with the girls made  the game come to life, and they got so much out of the day.

Within 10 minutes staff were asking why they never had anything like this when they were at school. If you haven’t yet booked ‘Keep the Cash’ then book it as this is the best Enterprise Day we have ever had.

Mrs Jacqui Chamberlain. Assistant Headteacher, Aylesford School and Sixth Form College, Warwick

I was really impressed by the way it engages students and gets to the heart of the issues that every young person will face when they start to build their own independent lives.

Keep the Cash! is the best thing I’ve seen for improving functional maths skills, collaborative working, communication skills and teaching pupils to analyse and evaluate situations and reflect effectively on their findings.

John Lee, Regional Adviser for Mathematics, Department for Education

Keep the Cash! helps students to take a long hard look at where money comes from and how best to spend it. I went along to see what pupils made of it.  The project succeeded way beyond my expectations.

Frank Field, MP and former Minister for Welfare

It was a thoroughly rewarding day where students were introduced to the key concepts and financial challenges that they will face in adult life. This was done in a fun way and and proved very enlightening for all involved.

Keep the Cash! was a real success. The students were engaged from the start and really enjoyed the practical experience of learning to manage their cash. Great day, great project, great staff equalled great success!

Keep the Cash! truly challenged our learners to consider the realities of everyday financial management. I’m sure we will invite the team back again next year.

 Keep the Cash! was really well received and there is still a buzz in the air ten days later.

There has been a high level of positive feedback from Year 10. I am really pleased by how much they got out of day.

 Our students really had a fabulous time and learned some powerful lessons. Staff also commented on well things had gone and how much they enjoyed supporting the event.

Emma Williamson, 11-19 Flexible and Alternative Curriculum Co-ordinator, North Leamington School

Many thanks for your excellent work with our students last week at University Academy. Although we had a great many varied activities yours was the stand-out event of the week with so many students and staff appreciating the valuable lessons they learned. I look forward to you contributing in a similar fashion to the event next year.

Paul Spence, Assistant Principal, University Academy Birkenhead, Wirral

 Keep the Cash! is the most effective financial literacy product currently available to education providers.
