Life insurer Pru Life UK has launched the Pru Life UK Online Professional Certification Training Program on Financial Literacy or PRU e-FinLit to further advance its education and financial literacy advocacy.
Over 1,000 teachers from the Department of Education (DepEd) – Division of Negros Occidental attended a live virtual program on June 3.
PRU e-FinLit is a free online course that aims to equip and empower Filipino professionals with the right financial literacy knowledge and skills to help them take control of their finances, maximize their resources, and eventually achieve their financial and life goals through guidance on financial management concepts.
Since its rollout, PRU e-FinLit has certified a total of 2,154 teachers who have passed the course in July, nearing its target of 2,500 teachers in Negros Occidental.
This program also supports DepEd’s newly implemented Financial Education Policy, which aims to teach public and private school learners about financial literary and help them achieve financial health in the future.
PRU e-FinLit is hosted through the Moodle platform, a trusted content management system specifically designed for education stakeholders.
The course can be accessed 24/7 across different web browsers and devices, allowing teachers the flexibility to take the course, at their own pace and preferred time. Certificates are also generated online for each level of the course completed.
PRU e-FinLit provides various learning tools to ensure understanding and practical application of key concepts in the course. This includes comics that portray relatable real-life scenarios, quizzes that serve as learning checkpoints, videos that offer a visual representation of topics, as well as assignments that help teachers reflect on and assess their financial state and goals further.
PRU e-FinLit is composed of two parts that offer a practical guide to the foundations of the financial management process: the Basic and Advanced levels.
The Basic level consists of three modules: personal financial assessment, financial goals, and financial management process.
The Advanced level, on the other hand, will soon be made available to teachers who complete the Basic level. It consists of five modules designed to help teachers grow and protect their finances, manage debts wisely, and prepare for retirement.
