Managing your debt

This module helps learners to identify bills they need to pay, looks at how we get into debt and how to prioritise repaying bills.

By the end of the module, learners will be able to:

  • Identify bills they may need to pay and when to pay them
  • Recognise the impact of poor money management (how we get into debt)
  • Prioritise repaying bills
  • Demonstrate an understanding of effective budgeting (linked to the Planning your personal budget module).
