Managing My Money

Programme Information

Glen Goodman and Annie Weston have done the impossible - they’ve made finance fun! They use humour, music and sketches to help you learn all you need to know about money. From savings to mortgages to insurance, it's all part of an official Open University course with a certificate at the end to prove how financially savvy you are. Each week of the 8-week course has two episodes, and there's a quiz at the end of each pair of episodes, with a final test at the end of the course. Sign-up/login and monitor your progress – you can also have progress reports sent to another person. New entrants can start the course afresh each fortnight: simply choose when you listen using the broadcast schedule. If you miss an episode, just catch up using the podcast links below. And as you listen, you can view the accompanying slides. Finally, please remember that this course is educational guidance, not financial advice. Enjoy!
