At Oplo, we’re passionate about responsible lending and money management. We want everyone, not just our customers, to know how to save, spend, and borrow in ways that will help them fulfil their true potential. And it all starts by making sure the next generation has the financial knowledge they’ll need to make informed decisions about the countless financial products and services that will be available to them in life.

Financial Education for Sixth Formers

We’ve been busy creating a financial education program to help empower the spenders, savers, budgeters and borrowers of tomorrow. Using this program, Oplo will help introduce 16 to 18-year-olds to important parts of finance. This will help build their understanding of financial products and think about what’s right for them as they navigate further studies and go off into the working world.

Our dedicated Financial Educator, Andrew, will be kicking off the programme with groups of sixth formers from schools in the Blackpool area, and later further afield. We’ve even commissioned a 16-seater bus to be transformed into a modern and immersive mobile learning hub, ready to take on tour across the North West.

The Oplo Financial Education Bus

Onboard the Oplo Bus, over the course of six engaging 30min sessions, Andrew will get the next generation thinking and talking about good habits in money management, as well as the pros and cons of many of today’s financial products and services.

From the perspective of the schools’, our free of charge course removes the burden on teachers to research, fact check and lesson plan around this tricky topic.

Our goal is to make life easier for educators by offering a reliable, comprehensive, and uncomplicated route to upskilling students as they prepare to leave high school. And as a responsible educator, there will be absolutely no promotion of Oplo’s products and services in any part of the learning experience.

Let’s Power the Potential of the Next Generation

We can’t wait to work with schools to provide a practical financial education in a fun, inclusive and uncomplicated way. Helping young adults go on to enjoy a happier, more fulfilling life, free from uncontrollable debt and empowered by informed financial decision making.
