Delivering empowering financial education

BP Lecture Theatre
Free, booking essential
Organised as part of the education programme for the British Museum’s Citi Money Gallery, this conference will provide delegates with models and strategies to deliver empowering financial education, now a compulsory part of Mathematics and Citizenship in the revised secondary National Curriculum. Museum collections and resources are excellent starting points for reinvigorating financial education and the key aim of the conference is to introduce fresh approaches to delivering it.
The conference will build on existing activities and demonstrate how new techniques can be embedded into units of work. Through short sessions and practical activities, it will showcase best practice from teachers, students and charity initiatives.
Registration will be from 14.00.
In addition to the main conference there are workshops during the morning. Details are in the programme which is available to download here.
The conference will be followed by a networking drinks reception.

Leading scholars present new findings and perspectives on China in the years 1400 to 1450.
1400 to 1450 was a period of change and consolidation for Ming dynasty China (1368–1644). This conference will look at the role of imperial and princely courts in China and how China interacted with the wider world during this important time. Over 30 international scholars will explore a wide range of topics, including art and material culture, the military and government, trade and diplomacy, beliefs and cross- cultural exchanges.
Please note, when you purchase a ticket it is for all three days of the conference.
Individual day tickets are not available.
The conference is held in conjunction with the BP exhibition Ming: 50 years that changed China. Research and conference supported by BP, the Arts and Humanities Research Council, the Sir Percival David Foundation and the James P Geiss Foundation.
