The Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs [FaHCSIA] funded organisations currently delivering MoneyBusiness through community education workshops will receive training through the Financial Management Resource Support Unit to deliver MoneyBusiness as an approved money management course. They will also be able to apply to FaHCSIA to have other courses they deliver assessed for approval as an approved money management course.
All other organisations delivering financial education courses that wish to deliver their course as an approved money management course will need to apply to FaHCSIA to have their course assessed.
Course owners will need to apply for approval of their course. Course owners will be required to include a list of other organisations permitted to deliver their course under licensing (or other) arrangements as an approved money management course.
Non-FaHCSIA funded organisations delivering approved money management courses will not be reimbursed for costs associated with the approval process or for delivering the course.
The approval process
FaHCSIA will acknowledge all applications for approval and will write to advise the outcome of the assessment process.
FaHCSIA has an approved money management course assessment team who will contact you if additional information is needed to support your application, or if your application is incomplete.
Course owners will be required to advise FaHCSIA of any changes to the content of their approved money management course at email@example.com
Information needed to support your application
Course owners must provide the following course information to support their application for approval:
- a course outline – this must show the topics to be covered and the amount of time to be spent on each topic
- a copy of the course advertising or promotional material – this could include flyers, fact sheets that show when and where the course is available
- examples of materials that will be given to participants – for example work books or handouts, and
- a list of organisations permitted to deliver your course as an approved money management course, including names and locations.
