Qualification to help offenders’ money skills

Awarding organisation SFJ Awards has developed a new qualification designed to help people with convictions improve their ability to manage personal finances prior to, and following, release from custody.

Working closely with specialist partner, Principles in Finance, the Level 2 Award in Personal Finance to Promote Social Inclusion has now been approved, the qualification covers the following units:

  • dealing with finances when in custody
  • understanding the different services offered by banks
  • methods of saving and borrowing money; and
  • managing debt and planning budgets.

SFJ Awards’ Awarding Organisation Manager Steve Batty said: “The knowledge and understanding gained from achieving this qualification is intended to help offenders and ex-offenders with their rehabilitation into the community.”
