Financial Literacy Micro-Credentials

In collaboration with Digital Promise and with the support of PwC, GFLEC is working to help bridge the gap between students’ need for personal finance education and teachers’ need for professional resources. We used our research experience and the Council for Economic Education’s National Standards for Financial Literacy to develop twenty micro-credentials, which are digital badges teachers can earn to show competency in specific personal financial areas. Each micro-credential includes methodologies and resources to help teachers cover content that secondary school students can apply directly to their own lives, including how to plan for their career and using their mobile phone to manage their finances.

Secondary school teachers who earn micro-credentials are eligible for continuing education credits in many states. To apply for a micro-credential or to learn more, click on the links below.
