The Skills Organisation believes financial capability should be the norm, not the exception, for all New Zealanders, including the industries we represent. It is our view that financial capability is a cornerstone component in the literacy/numeracy equation. To achieve this goal, we aim to embed financial capability into all our programmes.

Our resources

We are committed to helping employers to support their staff with all their learning objectives. The financial capability resources we develop with our partners are applicable to a wide range of learning environments.

We have piloted some of our resources through the Gateway schools programme and with Trade Academies. We are also keen to work with schools to provide a positive learning experience for our young people, and set them up with strong financial literacy skills for life.

Please feel free to view our resource links below and get in touch if you would like to find out more.


Delivery Guide

This delivery guide’s purpose is to help with the provision and delivery of the NZQA registered Financial Capability unit standards, level 1 – 3.

The guide aligns these unit standards to the TEC adult learning progressions. It gives an overview of the relevance to the learner, as well as the literacy and numeracy demands needed at these levels. Although aligned to the adult progressions, they can be easily transferred to the literacy and numeracy progressions for schools.
