Learn Investing, Taxes, Super & More

Remember how school taught you nothing about money? And now you're left wondering how taxes work, how to invest, and what on earth to do with your super? Well, there's a new school in town, teaching adults what they need to know about money.


Are you ready for some scary news?

Most Australians are bleeding money every single year on things that could easily be fixed if only they knew how. Australians have $12 billion dollars of unclaimed super, and pay $31 billion dollars in super fees every year.

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 most Australians feel stressed, overwhelmed and confused about money.

SkilledSmart is looking to change that with their practical, beginner-friendly, 6-week educational program. The program is designed to be hands-on, with participants applying the tools and concepts on their own throughout the program. The program is taught by an experienced finance expert, in a small-group setting to ensure participants get ample time to ask questions.

Enrolments for the February 2018 session now open at
