FINANCIAL LITERACY EDUCATION
BUSINESS AND COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT
PBS is proud to provide Financial Education Life Skills programmes to businesses
and community groups - within our local district,
and throughout the greater Auckland region.
A workforce with high levels of literacy and numeracy skills will be better equipped to contribute to New Zealand's economy.
There are also many very important key social benefits for parents, families and communities.
Changes have occurred in workplaces where we are seeing a greater demand for higher levels of literacy, numeracy, digital literacy, communication skills, financial capability and critical thinking.
Strengthening these skills is vital to keep pace, and to support the ongoing transformation of workplaces into ones that are highly productive - and in which staff do more valuable work - for both their firms, and for themselves.
A higher skill set means better communication with customers, colleagues and more efficient handling of tasks.
PBS has developed an in-depth Financial Education Life Skills programme with modules and resources that are customised to suit your own group's needs.
This programme will be delivered in your work place by a team of fully trained and very knowledgeable PBS Community Educators.
We have so far successfully provided these programmes to many organisations and businesses in and around the Auckland area..
These programmes are of great value for your team and slot nicely into staff training sessions.
Programme times are very flexible - these can be held either during the day, or in the evening to suit.
