How education can help to build trust and understanding — a case study of our education programme
This article looks at one of the initiatives used by the Bank of England to boost public understanding and build public trust, developing an education programme for school age children. We have developed educational resources to equip young people with the knowledge and tools they need to engage with the economy, understand the personal relevance of economics and understand the role of the Bank of England. Our first resource, econoME, provides an introduction to the economy for students aged 11–16.
