Make learning fun with videos, quizzes and simulated events that build knowledge through experiential learning. No prior educator or student financial literacy required.
What your students
With our online simulation and supporting teaching resources and activities, your students will explore a range of essential financial concepts from debt to investments, budgeting to careers, and more.
Students open and manage their own bank accounts, learn about withdrawals and deposits, transferring money, fees, and how interest rates work over time.
Students choose between various cards with different interest rates, fees, limits and rewards. They also learn about cash advances and associated costs.
Students build a basic CV and apply for a job through the careers market. They check in to ‘work’ each school day to progress their career through gaining industry-specific knowledge.
After beginning their careers, students engage with KiwiSaver, learning about contributions, providers, funds, and performance, and then choose a product that suits them.
Students can apply for a rental property, learn about tenancy agreements, their rights and responsibilities, and ensure weekly rent and expenses are paid on time.
As the simulation progresses, students can purchase property with the deposit they have saved, buying the home they rent or even becoming landlords of their peers.
Students prepare a basic budget based on their income and expenses. They’ll be rewarded for carefully managing their money and aiming for a weekly surplus.
Students can insure themselves against the random life events the platform will throw at them, choosing between insurance providers and policies for medical and income cover.
Students can manage more risk with general insurance, choosing between providers and policies to cover their contents, paying regular premiums and learning about claims.
Students can invest in companies on the fictitious Banqer High Stock Exchange (BHX) based on the company overview, industry, and performance history provided.
