Module 1 aims to alert students to the need for a planned approach to financial management.

Last Updated: 31/5/2016

Students should be able to:

  • identify their personal goals
  • identify the relationship between personal values and financial goals
  • develop an awareness of the life cycle and its effects on a personal financial plan
  • recognise that creating a financial plan involves the management of money to achieve goals
  • understand that financial decisions made today have an opportunity cost that will impact on the future
  • Every personal and financial decision you make today affects the options you will have tomorrow.
  • Goals in your financial plan should reflect your values.
  • Each financial plan should include short, medium and long term goals which specify what you want to achieve and how.
  • The power to control your financial success is in your own hands.
