The GetWise programme

Programme overview


Specifically tailored to each individual age group our award-winning ASB GetWise workshops for primary and intermediate schools deliver world-class face-to-face content in entertaining, educative, and exciting ways. Our professionally-trained facilitators tailor their delivery to the individual needs of each class in order to attain maximum impact while maintaining the key financial literacy concepts based on the New Zealand curriculum, the Financial Capabilities Framework, and global best practice in financial literacy education.

All workshops are completely free and are not used to sell or promote banking products or services with primary workshops designed to run for a length of between 30 minutes (Stage 0) and 45 minutes (Stage 1 – 3) while the intermediate workshop (Stage 4) is optimised to fit into a one-hour time frame.

Primary Programme

Our primary programme supports schools and teachers with interactive resources and workshops for years 3-6. From delivering the basics of understanding the concept of money and its values, through to the effectiveness of introductory goal setting and earning money.

Intermediate Programme

Our intermediate programme delivers two unique face-to-face workshop experiences on budgeting and smart spending concepts. One workshop includes the use of augmented reality (AR) technology and all classes gain access to a free online learning platform for further reinforcement of teaching concepts.

GetWise Digital

ASB GetWise can now offer online accessibility for Year 7 and 8 students that are unable to take advantage of our face-to-face programme through both an online learning platform, and a downloadable augmented reality resource for learning at home.

ASB GetWise has facilitators based in Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington and Christchurch, but they are committed to travelling to school communities across New Zealand.

We will be scheduling regional roadshows to areas outside the main metropolitan areas, so schools from Kaitaia to Invercargill will be able to book ASB GetWise facilitators to come to their school and present to their students.

Wherever you are – get in touch today! We’re looking forward to visiting your school soon!
