What Do We Do?

SV Edu has a focus on financial education. With the realisation that many people have no knowledge of or have not been exposed to personal finance and investing teachings, we created this education platform. Through the education platform, we aim to educate people on personal finance and investing, by creating and facilitating tailored training courses for our clients. Encouraging a strong savings culture is an important component for building a strong economy.

Who We Cater to?

This workshop is tailored to children in primary school from grades 4 – 7 and introduces early personal finance concepts. The workshop is delivered by integrating fun and interactive learning activities which further emphasis core learnings and concepts.

Topics Covered:

Making Decisions

From birth, a child has choices. If children are equipped with tools to make financially fit decisions from an early age, then making decisions for themselves as they grow becomes less difficult. This lesson introduces guided, money-related, decision-making learnings and activities.

Spending Plans & Allowances

Early training in categorizing money establishes patterns for future money-management behavior.  This lesson introduces children to the concept of dividing their money into categories, namely “save,” “spend,” and “share.” We present activities that will help children understand that money is limited in quantity and must be divided for different purposes.

Earning Money

Adults must earn money to provide for their needs and wants. In this lesson children learn that money is earned and does not come free. Children also learn that money is limited in quantity.  Early training in earning small amounts of money provides a foundation and understanding that work and money are connected.

What is money?

Money is the medium of exchange for most goods and services. Different coins and paper money have different values.  Children need the ability to recognize the names and values of different coins and bills used in exchange for goods and services. This lesson helps children identify the names of coins and grasp their relative values in terms of purchasing power. We present games and activities that will help children acquire this knowledge.

Savings and Investing

Introduce the advantages and disadvantages of common savings and investment vehicles, and show the short- and long-term effects of various savings and investment choices.

Throughout your teen years, you face numerous personal finance choices and decisions. For some people, the process of making decisions is haphazard. Yet analyzing a situation, identifying the available choices, and making informed decisions are processes that can be learned and practiced.

Topics Covered:

Making Decisions Provide an understanding and an awareness of the factors that can influence decisions, introduce basic decision-making methodologies, and provide structured practice in analyzing a problem, identifying options, and making decisions.

University presents a unique time in a young person’s life where financial literacy education is particularly important. Our workshops targeted at varsity students cover a number of important topics that young people who may be living on their own for the first time may encounter. These personal finance teachings also lay the groundwork for major decisions that happen shortly after graduation – like buying a home, a car and managing credit and debt.

Topics Covered:

The Art of Budgeting A personal budget is a financial plan that allocates future income toward expenses, savings, and debt repayment. “Where does the money go?” is a common dilemma faced by many individuals and households when it comes to budgeting and money management.  Effective money management starts with a goal and a step-by-step plan for saving and spending. Financial goals should be realistic, be specific, have a timeframe, and imply an action to be taken. This lesson will encourage students to take the time and effort to develop their own personal financial goals and budget.

Financial Pitfalls & Attitudes About Money

Are you frugal, a status-seeker, pleasure-oriented or seeking power through money? The workshop probes participants about what motivates them (or doesn’t) money-wise, and offers advice on how to develop a positive money attitude.
Living on Your Own As young people grow up, a common goal is to live on their own. However, the challenges of being independent  are often quite different from their expectations. This lesson provides a reality check for students as they investigate the costs associated with moving, obtaining furniture and appliances, and renting an apartment.
Credit In today’s world, credit is integrated into everyday life. From renting a car to reserving an airline ticket or hotel room, credit cards have become a necessary convenience. However, using credit wisely is critical to building a solid credit history and maintaining fiscal fitness. While most students have a general idea about the advantages and disadvantages of credit, this lesson provides an opportunity to discuss these issues in more detail.
Saving and Investing Saving just 35 cents a day will result in more than R 125 in a year. Small amounts saved and invested can easily grow into larger sums. However, a person must start to save.  This lesson provides students with a basic knowledge of saving and investing. The process starts with setting financial goals. Next, a commitment to saving is discussed.

Money is personal and private. In a workshop setting, it can be hard to get people to start talking. That is the goal of this introductory workshop, where participants are asked to ‘break the ice’ with fellow learners and set financial goals.

Topics Covered:

Budgeting & Organizing Your Finances This is where the heart of financial stability lies: the budget. Traditional budgets can be daunting, but the one we go through is easy to understand and practical.
Financial Pitfalls & Attitudes About Money Are you frugal, a status-seeker, pleasure-oriented or seeking power through money? The workshop probes participants about what motivates them (or doesn’t) money-wise, and offers advice on how to develop a positive money attitude.
Savings Strategy Savings is where the rubber meets the road. In this section of the workshop, we challenge our delegates to be bold and get ahead by setting savings goals.
Understanding Credit & Debt This module delegates will learn about secure and unsecured debt, the 5 C’s of Credit, your credit score and much more.
Saving for the Future & Investing If you have debt and pay interest on it, saving money in a retirement account is probably not going to help you over the long term.
