“Understanding Finance” programme – Free Places Available

How to Make your Money Go Further

The management of money is an important skill that needs to be understood and practiced by everyone, particularly person finance at a time of financial constraints.  The Ryan Academy Workshop aims to develop this skill by introducing the main areas of finance and explaining them in the context of your personal and household experiences.

You will be taken through a series of six practical and enjoyable workshops, where the aim will be to:

  • Introduce the key areas of finance
  • Examine ways to save money
  • Understanding financial institutions, including banks, building societies and credit unions
  • Financial services for the individual, including bank accounts, savings, credit cards and insurance
  • Understanding your state entitlements and allowances
  • Borrowing and understanding the cost of borrowing, including loans, hire purchase and mortgages
  • Your consumer rights
  • Budgeting

The courses will be held over 6 mornings, starting on Friday 19th November 2010 for 6 Friday’s.  The workshop lasts for 2½ hours, from 10.00am to 12.30pm and a sandwich lunch will be served after each session.

Each week we will have a guest speaker from one of the following: Social Welfare, MABS, Consumers Association of Ireland, Banking Institute – this will be confirmed with you on Day 1 of the Workshop.  A certificate of attendance will be awarded on completion of the 6 week workshop.

We are offering a limited number of free places to those who would like to learn how to better manage their money, especially in the current times we are living in.
