TCTS SA™ is a national savings and financial literacy campaign supported by the Department of Basic Education. The TCTS SA™ Lesson Plan has been integrated within the Economic Management Sciences (EMS) learning area of the school curriculum.
The Lesson Plan covers the basic concept of saving, reasons to save, budgeting to save, understanding the difference between a need and a want and where to save. The four learning outcomes of EMS focus on the economic cycle, sustainable growth and development, and managerial, consumer, financial and entrepreneurial knowledge and skills.
TCTS SA™ also lends itself to Life Orientation skills where learners are guided and prepared for life and its possibilities. The 2010 TCTS SA™ Evaluation forms have been reviewed and modified to strengthen the programme's Evolution.
