Economic Literacies Survey
Posted by James on 5 July 2012
SEAD is planning a pilot of its economic literacies community education project. The pilot will develop the content of the project and identify those areas of economic life people want to understand the most.
The aim of the project is to empower people by demystifying the economic forces that shape their world and have a direct impact on them, their families and their communities.
The pilot will be used to develop a model for community education in economics that can be adopted by other groups, and which will produce supporting toolkits and learning resources. A successful pilot will be an essential part of a future funding bid that will allow us to roll the project out across Scotland.
As part of our research for the Economic Literacies pilot we’ve written a short survey. We’re trying to find out what economic issues intrigue people, puzzle people, and what they would like to know more about. It’s only a few questions but it will provide us with valuable information for planning the content and methods of the project.
