We’re pleased to announce that Managing My Money, the first in a series of free personal financial courses available from the True Potential Centre for the Public Understanding of Finance and the Open University, will be broadcast live on Share Radio, starting from 7th September at 9pm.

The online version of the course has attracted around 50,000 participants and has been one of the most popular courses on FutureLearn MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) and OpenLearn.

What Does the Course Cover?

Over eight weeks, Managing My Money aims to provide the skills to manage expenditures, budgeting and plans for retirement.

It focuses on seven core subjects:
