SINGAPORE Exchange (SGX) will be working with the National Institute of Education (NIE) to arm more than 30,000 teachers and trainee teachers with financial management and investments skills.
Driven by the Citi-NIE Financial Literacy Hub for Teachers and the SGX Academy, the S$1.5 million programme will tap NIE's strength in curriculum design and pedagogy and SGX Academy's expertise in finance and investments to deliver a structured financial education roadmap for teachers.
The programme includes a comprehensive six-module investment education programme for the teachers, equipping them with knowledge in using online investment resources such as SGX StockFacts and MyGateway and giving them free access to SGX Academy's various investor education seminars and activities.
The partnership is expected to progressively benefit the teachers. Teachers who complete the full curriculum will be awarded with a certificate from NIE.
