Comparing selected financial education learning frameworks
Learning frameworks provide a planned and coherent structure for financial education in the official school sector, at the primary or secondary level. They operate at meta-level, providing learning outcomes or standards for financial education. This chapter illustrates the INFE Guidance on Learning Frameworks that complement the INFE Guidelines displayed in Annex A. It provides both a comparative analysis of the learning frameworks, from their design to their practical implementation, and a detailed description of available relevant frameworks. The analysis focuses first on their development, and notably on the institutions responsible for their drafting, the goals and institutional endorsement. It then addresses their content, from the dimensions of financial education they focus on to the learning outcomes and topics, and their implementation, including links with other subjects, effective pedagogy, students ’ assessment and the role of teachers.
