Home Economics teachers recently attended a training seminar entitled ‘Innovations in Financial Literacy Education’ organised by the Malta Bankers’ Association in collaboration with the Department of Curriculum Management’s Home Economics Seminar Centre.

During the event, bank officials gave presentations on existing and new electronic payment channels, security of electronic payments, key aspects of life insurance, terms normally applied to home loans, and salient consumer protection provisions in the related regulations.

The training was aimed at helping the participants address innovations in financial literacy related to topics in the Home Economics syllabus.

The seminar formed part of a programme of activities organised in connection with European Money Week, a European Banking Federation initiative being held this week aimed at promoting financial education and financial literacy among students and youths.
