PSE - Fun, not taxing

29th January 2010 at 00:00

With tax and public spending high on the news agenda, teachers are being urged to take advantage of a free online teaching resource that helps pupils learn what tax is all about.

Specifically designed for personal and social education, business studies and citizenship teachers of pupils aged over 11, Tax Matters contains three teaching modules to help secondary school pupils gain an understanding of how taxes are raised, what the main taxes are, and what they pay for.

The three modules - which cover income tax, national insurance, and tax and society - use fun, interactive features such as videos, quizzes and games, as well as key facts and figures, to help teachers bring the subject to life in the classroom.

All materials are free and have been produced by HM Revenue and Customs.
