With data we have in our possession has shown that increasing numbers of young people are affected by fraud, either being targeted by online fraudsters or unwittingly engaging in fraudulent acts themselves.There has also been an increase in involvement in delinquent behaviors like shoplifting (actually our data show that 60% are minors) etc
Together with individual schools, have created created four Anti-Fraud Education lesson plans with accompanying resources. The lesson plans are targeted at 11-16 year olds and cover Key Stage 3 and 4.
The lessons aim to help students:
The two lesson plans for Key Stage 3 introduce students to the concept of fraud and the importance of digital literacy and data protection within the context of financial risk. For Key Stage 4, the two lessons build on this learning by encouraging students to think about their responsibility for financial information in more independent contexts.
