Financial Literacy for Inclusion: A Practical Tool to Assess Financial Literacy

We are happy to announce that the self-assessment tool for basic financial competences is now available online! The tool has been developed within the project 'Fly - Financial literacy for inclusion', funded by the European Commission's Erasmus+ program. Why do we provide a tool to assess financial literacy? Financial literacy is an essential life skill. We need financial competences for a number of activities we do every day or for taking financial decisions, such as deciding at which bank open an account, which mortgage to choose or how to invest our savings. Financial literacy also protects against over-indebtedness, excessive risk-taking, fraud. Yet, according to the 2020 OECD (an international body for economic development and cooperation) survey on adult financial literacy, about half of the EU adult population lacks of sufficient financial knowledge. The Fly project's self-assessment tool is therefore a key part of the learning pathway offered by the platform. Through 15 multiple-choice questions, skills are tested on topics such as: inflation, simple and compound interest rates and how to calculate them, budgeting, gross and net income, payment instruments and their characteristics, and much more. In the final version of the platform, after having taken the self-assessment test, specific training courses which are in process of preparation will be recommended to the users. Test your financial skills now by taking FLY's self-assessment test, which can be accessed via the following link > SELF-ASSESSMENT TOOL Additional resources and tool for the assessment of the level of financial literacy have been selected by FLY partners from those already available online and collected in the REPOSITORY section.

Financial Literacy for Inclusion: Consortium joined the second Transnational Project Meeting of FLY.

On July 1st, 2022, the consortium joined the second TPM of FLY (Financial literacy for inclusion), a Project co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Commission, which brings together 8 Partners from 5 different countries (Belgium, France, Italy, Spain and Turkey). The Meeting, hosted by Fuori Dal Sommerso, took place in Mesagne, Italy.  During the meeting, the consortium discussed the overall progression of Project Result 1 (OER Platform), Project Result 2 (SAT, a practical tool to assess financial literacy), and organised the distribution of work for the implementation of the Project Result 3, which will be the development of training courses aimed at improving the financial literacy of low skilled adults.  FLY’s objective is to create financial culture among adults low skilled engaging them in learning financial. Having a financial culture will help them to make positive choices for themselves and for society also from an environmental point of view. FLY develops and deploys a simple guide within everyone's reach to find the best way to use money, paying attention to the impact it has not only on our lives, but also on those of others and on our planet.  On the basis of that, in the following two years FLY will sustain the development among adults low skilled of financial literacy, providing all citizens with some of the tools that are indispensable today to build a peaceful, safe and sustainable future for themselves, their families and the planet; its innovative methodology relies on demand-drive and bottom-up approaches that will lead partners in the creation of several strategic results:  1.    Fly Platform (OER Platform) in Multilanguage version 2.    A Practical Tool to Assess Financial Literacy 3.    FLY Free Financial learning for low skilled Adults 4.    Ethical and Sustainable Finance in Europe, a report During the meeting, the consortium discussed the overall project implementation schedule, defining timelines and respective duties in the following months.  For further information on FLY project: https://fly-project.eu/

Financial Literacy for Inclusion: FLY website is now available online

FLY is a Project co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Commission that aims at the creation of financial culture among adults low skilled engaging them in learning financial. FLY will sustain the development among adults low skilled of financial literacy, providing all citizens with some of the tools that are indispensable today to build a peaceful, safe and sustainable future for themselves, their families and the planet. The project officially kick-started in February with the first online transnational meeting during which partners had a great opportunity to discuss the overall project implementation schedule, define timelines and respective duties in the following months. One of the very first activities was the development, testing and implementation of the Open Educational Resources (OER) Platform.  Fly Platform is the main showcase of project’s results and its largest and most tangible channel for international visibility, and is available in 5 languages (EN, ES, IT, FR, TR) with all of its content completely available for free, without requiring any kind of registration/identification by the user. FLY website is now online at https://fly-project.eu/.  For the next two years, the Platform will host and integrate all the main achievements of the consortium; each section of the Fly Platform is a stand-alone library of its corresponding output. The “Assessment Tool” section will contain a practical tool for assessing financial literacy to measure financial knowledge, behaviour and attitudes, which will be useful for comparing levels of financial literacy and financial inclusion across countries. The FLY Free Financial learning for adults low skilled training courses will be published in “Learning”; the content will be fully available for free and the learning areas will be (1) Financial Literacy Alphabet, (2) Risk and dangers, and (3) Finance for Good. The “Report” section will host the report “Ethical and Sustainable Finance in Europe”. This output will be very strategic to better understand the role of the Bank and finance and the role of social and ethical finance. In addition, the "Associates" section will be relevant to the widespread impact of the project, as organisations interested in the project will be able to join the FLY community and become associated partners.

FLY Project has been officially launched

On February 2nd, 2022, the consortium joined the online Kick-Off Meeting of FLY (Financial literacy for inclusion), a Project co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Commission, which brings together 8 Partners from 5 different countries (Belgium, France, Italy, Spain and Turkey).  The Kick-Off Meeting, hosted by Association FenêtreS (Rhône-Alpes – FR), was originally planned in Tassin la Demi-Lune, but has been rescheduled online due to COVID-19 restrictions. FLY’s objective is to create financial culture among adults low skilled engaging them in learning financial. Having a financial culture will help them to make positive choices for themselves and for society also from an environmental point of view. FLY develops and deploys a simple guide within everyone's reach to find the best way to use money, paying attention to the impact it has not only on our lives, but also on those of others and on our planet.  The OECD’s Principles and Good Practices for Financial Education and Awareness recommend that financial education must be available for all and should start as early as possible and be taught in schools. Including financial education as part of the curriculum in school (all levels) is a fair and efficient policy tool. Financial iliteracy crosses all economic boundaries from low-income to high-income families, and even well-educated, high-income adults may not know how to budget properly or manage their money well. According to Global Attractiveness Index 2020 Financial literacy is highest between the ages of 35 and 44; it is low in people under the age of 35 and very low in adult low skilled (over 50). On the basis of that, in the following two years FLY will sustain the development among adults low skilled of financial literacy, providing all citizens with some of the tools that are indispensable today to build a peaceful, safe and sustainable future for themselves, their families and the planet; its innovative methodology relies on demand-drive and bottom up approaches that will lead partners in the creation of several strategic results:  1.    Fly Platform (OER Platform) in Multilanguage version 2.    A Practical Tool to Assess Financial Literacy 3.    FLY Free Financial learning for Adults low skilled 4.    Ethical and Sustainable Finance in Europe, a report During the meeting, the consortium discussed the overall project implementation schedule, defining timelines and respective duties in the following months. The FLY official website will represent a repository of the project’s outputs, results, news and contacts. A Practical Tool to Assess Financial Literacy will be designed with the aim of measure the financial knowledge, behaviour and attitudes, useful to compare levels of financial literacy and financial inclusion across countries; and on which the 2 subsequent project results will be based, the creation of the FLY Free Financial learning for adults low skilled training courses, and the Ethical and Sustainable Finance in Europe report.
