Learn Investing, Taxes, Super & More
Do you wish school had taught you more about money? Do you feel flustered or frustrated by the complex jargon, and wish you knew more about taxes, how to invest, and what on earth to do with your super? SkilledSmart is a new 'money school', with a 6-week program teaching adults what they need to know about money.


Are you ready for some scary news?

Most Australians are bleeding money on things that can be easily fixed...if only they knew how.

The industry doesn't make it easy. With the overly complex jargon, big institutions trying to sell new products, and financial advisors charging thousands of dollars, it's no wonder that over 64% of Australians feel stressed, overwhelmed and confused about money.

SkilledSmart runs a practical, beginner-friendly, 6-week educational program on money & wealth. The program covers everything from budgeting and debt, to investing and superannuation. Students get 15 hours of face-time with a financial professional (which usually costs thousands of dollars), and the program is designed to be hands-on, with participants applying the tools and concepts on their own throughout the program. You'll be learning with a small-group of like-minded individuals to support you through your learning journey!

Enrolments for the May 2018 session now open on the website

Course Fee: $99 per week (6 weeks)

Upcoming Session Dates: 31 May to 5 July 2018

    "This course changed my life. Before I felt overwhelmed and lacked confidence with money. The course has really empowered me to take control. I understand more about my superannuation, I've found so many savings opportunities, and now I really enjoy investing when previously I was terrified of it. I think the benefits I will have gained from doing this course will be worth tens of thousands of dollars over a lifetime" -- Sandy, Pharmacist

    "Everyone should do this course! Understanding these subjects has made me more confident in the financial choices I make and I've gone from terrified of investing to actually doing it. One of the best aspects of this course is that there's no 'selling' of products or services; it's just wonderfully simple information for life changing benefits." -- Tui, Marketing Professional

    "Oh my gosh best course ever! So informative, practical and relevant! I feel I am making better, smarter decisions about my finances as a result of this course, which is making me more confident in other areas of my life too. It's extremely empowering. Didn't realise how lost I was until I did this course!" -- Natasha, Psychologist
