This report presents a review of the provision and accreditation of financial literacy education in England at the levels covered by Skills for Life (i.e. up to and including Level 2), not including financial advice and information. It is based upon data collected in the first half of 2004. Financial literacy education provision is mapped against the broad areas identified by the Financial Services Authority and the Basic Skills Agency (BSA) in the Adult Financial Capability Framework (FSA/BSA 2003). This is thought to be the first such attempt.
