We will promote the work of our NSMW Showcase Partners using the NASMA website, smartphone application and social media accounts, they will also feature in NSMW-related press releases. To assist us in doing this our Showcase Partners will provide a brief monthly summary of how planning is progressing towards their NSMW activity. These reports will be summarised on this webpage, and act as a useful guide for those that have less experience in organising pro-active engaging financial capability activity for their students.
