Guest lectures for seventh to ninth classes

Students in the seventh to ninth classes are getting closer to becoming economically independent. They may already have a part-time job or their own payment card. Understanding personal finance therefore becomes increasingly relevant. As part of the SmartMoney programme in Denmark, Danske Bank advisers offer guest lectures at public schools. The adviser discusses with the students what it takes to have sound personal finances by engaging them in cases and games.

Danish kids getting financially smart

The SmartMoney (in Danish, Kloge Penge) instructional programme is Danske Bank’s offer for schoolchildren. It teaches children about personal finance, and it is based on Danish elementary schools’ shared objectives for maths and social science, which include personal finance as a mandatory topic. It is non-commercial and unbranded.
