Service Description

Cifas is the UK's leading fraud prevention service, helping to protect individuals and organisations from fraud and financial crime.

The two lesson plans for key stage 3 students introduce the concept of fraud and the importance of digital literacy and data protection within the context of financial risk.

The two lessons for key stage 4 build on this learning by encouraging students to think about their responsibility for financial information in more independent contexts.
