The mission of Red Star Education is to develop and advance levels of financial literacy for all. We strive to provide our learners with an exceptional learning experience using innovative teaching techniques, ensuring our students have the confidence to take responsibility for their financial futures.
It is becoming more widely accepted that, that a understanding of personal financial matters can impact on work life & productivity, social mobility, careers prospects and very importantly physical & mental wellbeing.
This is where Red Star Education provides an outstanding solution in one vital area – that of personal financial planning where we strive to make the impact a positive one.
Red Star Education is the brain child of Kristen Cunliffe, who is a qualified and practicing independent financial adviser of more than 20 years experience.
Kristen recognised that the much publicised cases of financial misfortune involving footballers in a large number of cases might not have existed had the player in question been equipped with the knowledge to accept the responsibility for their own financial security.
Starting Red Star Education initially to provide impartial education within football academies, the team was joined by Nick Cunliffe in 2014 and has develop to provide short courses for workforces, community groups and schools & colleges of all ages.
We tailor our courses and workshops to best fit with our students.
For a football academy that might be five 1 hour sessions across 2 seasons; For our corporate clients, it might be 2 pension clinics per year – providing workers with everything they need to know about planning a financially sound retirement; For a group of Brownies, it might be investigating coins and bank notes and helping to understand basic money management.
Whatever it is we do, we do it with enthusiasm and passion for helping people learn and get the most out of their time with us. We encourage questions and discussions and sessions are never dull!
