National Consumer and Financial Literacy Framework (September 2011)

The  National Consumer and Financial Literacy Framework (September 2011) is a revised version of the National Consumer and Financial Literacy Framework (the Framework) originally developed in 2005. It articulates a rationale for consumer and financial education in Australian schools; describes essential consumer and financial capabilities that will support lifelong learning; and provides guidance on how consumer and financial education may be structured to support a progression of learning from Foundation–Year 10. The  Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) led the revision of the National Framework in consultation with the Australian Government Financial Literacy Board, ASIC’s National Reference Group – Consumer and Financial Literacy, and other key consumer and education stakeholders.

Companion resources to this Framework, developed by ASIC, provide further guidance about integrating consumer and financial education into specific learning areas of the Australian Curriculum. These companion resources are available at: www.teaching.moneysmart.gov.au.
