    My daughter has managed to get herself in debt (again), and is asking the parents for money. I would like her to complete the Academoney course, in the hope that she gets a better understanding of financial management, and is less likely to find herself in debt yet again. So I was wondering how can she verify that she has actually done it?
    I know that there is a certificate, but I see pictures of other people's on the web, that can be easily downloaded and amended, is there a screenshot that she can take inside the portal that proves that she has done it ?

    Hi All,
    Just getting started on the course but Activity 1 in session 1 seems to be missing ...?  The one about your money personality. I can't see a button to activate this activity.
    As at 27th March 2022:
    - £6,147.90 Virgin C/Cd debt (0% until 31.03.23)
    - £6,483 'savings' so £336 of actual savings
    - £315,995 mortgage debt and end date at start = October 2039 <gulp>, now £289,047, end date unchanged as yet
    - OPs to mortgage = £112.21 to date

    Proud member of Tilly-Tidy Club since January 2022: January = £1.43, February £10.47, £12.36
    Decluttering target in 2022 = 2022. Achieved 55 declutterings so far.

    Hi everyone! How are you all getting on?
    Well, I completed the course yesterday and received my badge and statement of participation today! It was a great feeling!
    Who else has managed to find time to complete it?
    Just finished the course today, although I started it ages ago. It's really worthwhile and I would think it would be very useful for my son.

    Hi everyone, just letting you know that MoneySavingExpert.com's 'Academoney' course - prepared and written by the Open University - is going bilingual, giving Welsh-language speakers the skills and knowledge they need to master their money, in their choice of Welsh or English.

    Read the full MSE News story in English:

    I did the course last August, and have just realised that there was a badge. Is it supposed to appear on my account or do I need to upload it somehow?

    Assuming this is the correct badge as downloaded from the OU site

    I just completed the course and I thought it was excellent. I am still only young and I didn't know much about managing my finances so the course has taught me a huge amount of valuable information. Thank you so much to MoneySavingExpert and The Open University!
