Beginner Series vs Starter Pack: What's the Difference?

NGPF On-Demand modules present the utmost flexibility in professional development. You can learn at your own pace, anytime, anywhere. With each module designed to be completed in one-hour, they are a perfect solution to a busy schedule. 

For those new to teaching personal finance or using NGPF for the first time, the ideal starting point lies within our Beginner Series and Starter Pack modules.

But, what's the difference? 

The NGPF Starter Pack modules are a core bundle of 12 modules designed to build your fundamental personal finance knowledge. These are content specific modules covering key information in banking, budgeting, credit, insurance, investing, paying for college, and taxes. They are ideal for acquiring or refreshing content knowledge before classroom instruction!


NGPF's Beginner Series modules are tailored to seamlessly integrate NGPF's curriculum resources into your classroom. Kicking off with "Beginner Series: Navigating the NGPF Website," these modules offer a terrific introduction to newcomers. With three modules to explore, they are the perfect way to get familiar with all NGPF has to offer!
