Nationwide Education is an independent, free website aimed at helping young people aged 2-18+ develop key life skills. There’s a wealth of engaging content available on topics such as money, numeracy, careers, sustainability and road and home safety, including games, factsheets, workshops and films.
All the activities are designed to be fun as well as useful, so it shouldn’t be a struggle getting the kids to have a go at them.
From online board games which challenge kids to answer questions about employment and the workplace, to interactive programmes which help little ones to recognise coins and virtual tours of workplaces, there’s something to suit every age group and ability.
All of the content links closely to the National Curriculum, so it’s really useful for supporting the work your kids are doing in the classroom.
Since Nationwide Education launched in 2007, it's attracted over 50 million hits and downloads and has won numerous awards, including the Children and Young People Now Awards: Financial Capability Award.
