HIGHLY COMMENDED: HM Revenue & Customs
PROJECT: Tax Facts
Tax Facts is HMRC’s project to educate 14 to 17-year olds about how public money is raised and spent and to introduce them – in a very easy-to-understand way – to their future responsibilities as tax payers. It also fills a gap in the Citizenship Curriculum.
The centre-piece is four, short, light-hearted animations, covering: HMRC’s work, starting your first job, working for yourself and the hidden economy.
To complement the animations, HMRC has also created a pack of material, with ready-made lesson plans and a range of interesting exercises and resources for teachers.
