Session 1

Date: 25th January 2024
Time: 10:00 - 11:00
Location: NASMA
Facilitated by: Louise Reid & Jacqui Hamilton

Join the Financial Capability and Research Committee to chat about all things Fin Cap! If you are looking for ideas, to share best practice or even just to find out more, do come along to the online Fin Cap Discussion Zone.

Talking Points:

Student Lifecycle – How do we best plan effective fin cap offerings over time? This might be reflective of the overall student lifecycle from pre-entry to graduation or simply over the academic year.

How to Have a Happy January – How do we best beat the January blues with our students? Some people find the dark months after Christmas tough. Many institutions report a fall in engagement and enthusiasm overall. How can fin cap support this? What might help improve the overall mood and get students back on track?

How Did You Do That? – An opportunity to ask committee members with particular experience, questions about how to approach different fin cap projects.

NASMA are pleased to host National Student Money Week 2024 Member Forums.

These events will provide a platform for discussion and sharing best practice, to help you kick start your campaign planning.

Tell us what you are doing in your institution, what has worked and what hasn't. This is also a great platform to ask questions of fellow members if you are new to National Student Money Week.

Space is limited as we want to keep the numbers of participants at a level conducive to an effective discussion, so please book quickly to avoid disappointment. There are two different sessions to choose from. If more than one member of your team wishes to attend, we recommend attending different sessions to benefit more fully from the varied discussion we expect.
