Our purpose

Nationwide Education is an award-winning independent website which educates young people aged 2 – 18+ on money, numeracy, careers, sustainability and safety in the home and on the roads, via games, factsheets, worksheets and films.

The site has a wealth of content for students, teachers and parents. Nationwide Education is all about helping future generations by developing core lifeskills:

  • Free website specifically designed for 2 – 18+ year olds
  • Full of fun interactive games, films, factsheets and worksheets to engage young people
  • Separate resources for teachers, pupils / students and parents
  • Linked to the national curricula
  • Independent of the products and services of Nationwide Building Society 
  • Resources for interactive whiteboards and PCs that include downloadable PDFs for use in the classroom and at home.

Nationwide Education is brought to you by Nationwide Building Society, who is proud to invest one percent of its pre-tax profits in community and charitable activities; in fact, this is something their members asked them to do.

As part of its Citizenship work, Nationwide started its education programme in 2007. Since then, it's gone from strength to strength, attracting over 50 million hits and downloads, and always staying true to its principle of being free to use and independent of Nationwide's products and services.

We are very proud of the awards Nationwide Education has received:

  • Children and Young People Now Awards: Financial Capability Award
  • IVCA Awards: Gold Award, e-learning category
  • IVCA Clarion Awards: Corporate Communications Best Interactive
