The Brotherhood of St Laurence offers community workers training in MoneyMinded, Australia's largest adult financial education program, developed to help people build their financial skills, knowledge and confidence.
MoneyMinded was developed by ANZ following its ANZ Survey of Adult Financial Literacy in Australia (2003), which identified a strong link between socio-economic status and financial literacy levels.
MoneyMinded training is free for community workers who want to gain access to financial information and tools to help their clients.
Community workers can then deliver training sessions to groups or use the resources in one-on-one meetings with their clients.
Please note that courses for 2019 are fully booked so courses for January – March are listed below.
