Free accredited Money Mentors Courses for local organisations across NI! NOW Group’s Money Mentors financial capability course is offering free group training places to local organisations throughout NI. The OCN accredited course is part of the Money for Life Programme, which NOW Group manages in Northern Ireland on behalf of Lloyds’ Banking Group. Focusing on how to give one-to-one money management support, the qualification enables those working or volunteering in the public or not-for-profit sector to equip the people they support with vital money management skills. The course, an OCN Level 2 accreditation, is particularly useful for those working in charities, housing associations, local authorities, Citizens Advice Bureau and other community organisations.  It can be held at NOW Group’s training facility in west Belfast, or a location in your area.

NOW Money Mentors CourseThere is a 14 place requirement on each Money Mentors group course.

However, if you have a smaller group that would like to attend a Money Mentors course, and therefore cannot make the number requirement, please get in touch. NOW Group may be able to facilitate a shared group course.

Money Mentors is delivered over two days, two weeks apart and it is compulsory to attend both days.

There is a written assignment included and the course tutor will offer support and guidance to help with this.

The course has 8 modules:

  1. Financial information, advice and guidance
  2. Boundaries in meeting the requirements of clients
  3. Meeting financial IAG requirements of clients
  4. Effective communication skills
  5. Values, beliefs and attitudes towards money
