Martin Lewis: Student Loans Decoded Teacher Guide

(0)
Martin Lewis: Student Loans Decoded is a groundbreaking, no-nonsense video guide to student finance and the real impact of higher education on both students’ and parents’ pockets. Speaking to a lively group of 100 pupils at Queens Park Community School in north-west London, Martin Lewis shatters popular myths and challenges the widespread misinformation that risks many young people not understanding – in practical terms – whether they can afford to go to university. Designed to be watched in the classroom or at home, the video is accompanied by a teacher guide to support those working with prospective university students – with activities for each chapter mapped to the Secondary Financial Education Planning Framework. This easy-to-follow programme focuses on the current student loans system in England (introduced in 2012), explaining fees, repayment, interest, maintenance loans and more. The teacher guide was created together with financial education charity Young Money and has received the Young Money Financial Education Quality Mark. The video chapters cover: How much does it cost to go to university? How much are parents expected to contribute? How are student loans paid back? How does the interest on student loans work? Let’s hear from Martin himself, "Student finance has long been a political hot potato. The venom spat across the House of Commons has led to widespread confusion and misunderstanding. "Schools need to replace the politics with the practical. Only by understanding the true cost of going to university can students and their parents objectively decide if it’s right for them. While some rightly choose not to go to university due to the cost, many reject it based on financial myths. That’s tragic. "Too many are put off by the high price tag on tuition fees, and the overall ‘debt’ figure they’re left with, even though that bears little resemblance to what they actually repay. Too few consider the greater challenge of affording to live while studying. Last year, we launched our Student Loans Decoded lesson-length programme – we’ve had great feedback, but many teachers wanted more. “So now, together with the Young Money charity, we’ve created a linked teacher guide, mapped to the financial education planning framework, to make the lesson planning even easier. And as it’s received the Young Money quality mark – a stamp of approval for financial education – you can be assured that it meets all the requirements for your classes.”
