FINANCIAL CONFIDENCE:

‘If you don’t know how to manage and work with a small amount of money, you won’t know how to work with a large amount of money and will repeat the same mistakes.’

Attending this Financial Confidence workshop in a small group will give you personal attention and empower you with the tools and understanding to:

  • manage your finances with awareness and confidence
  • make informed decisions about spending, saving, debt and acquiring assets
  • change your negative patterns and impact those around you in a positive manner.

WHAT WILL A SESSION COVER?

During an interactive four-hour session we will cover:

  • Our attitudes towards money
  • Income (This includes sources of income and division of income)
  • Expenditure (How do we spend? Why do we spend? How do we use accounts, cash and a budget?)
  • Debt (Why we get into debt, reducing debt, managing debt, loans, interest rates)
  • Saving (What saving entails and why it is important, which platforms to use, policies, RAs, investments)
  • Managing your money (Reading statements, your credit profile, your will).
  • Money and Relationships

Attendees will have the opportunity to work as individuals, in pairs and in groups. They will complete worksheets to reinforce the learning, get insight into their financial habits and to refer to and use after the course.

Although the training is interactive and discussion is encouraged, no personal financial information is shared.

OUTCOMES OF A SESSION

The intention of the training is to:

  • give participants more confidence and motivation to manage their money effectively
  • enable individuals to reduce debt over time
  • encourage people to save and be financially self-sufficient enough to acquire assets.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

  • Lower income earners who are financially more vulnerable and who lack financial knowledge
  • Individuals who are blacklisted, have garnishee orders or credit problems
  • Individuals entering the job market for the first time
  • Employees who face retrenchment
  • Anyone who wants better insight into their financial behaviour and well-being.
