The resources are aimed at Year 9 and 10 business and social science students and were developed with the help of an experienced practising teacher.

The resources are targeted at teenagers at the age many will get their first job and start making their own borrowing and purchasing decisions. The resources are designed to help teens become confident consumers who know their basic rights and how to exercise them and focus on common situations like buying a car, getting a loan, being visited by door-to-door salespeople, and making a decision about whether to buy an extended warranty.

The resources include a student workbook, teacher’s PowerPoint instructions, interactive quizzes, and a board game.

If you know a teacher who would like the resources or think they would come in handy with your work in this space please email communications@comcom.govt.nz.
