Twelve Nambawan Super Officers completed an intensive Train the Trainer (TOT) workshop and are starting to deliver free Financial Literacy Training (FLT) for Nambawan Super Members.
Chief Executive Officer, Paul Sayer said the 12 staff are ready to deliver the Fund’s new Financial Literacy programs which are being offered free of charge to members.
“The NSL Financial Literacy Program has been developed to teach members skills and behaviours to improve their long-term financial wellbeing, and is much more than an awareness or promotion program for our products,” Mr Sayer said.
“The new Financial Literacy program provides trusted superannuation advice, and the financial skills and tools needed in difficult times to safeguard member well-being now and into retirement.”
NSL engaged a certified and experienced Senior Trainer, namely, Mr. David Angalapu Roape of AGORA Education & Training Institute (AETI). AETI is an accredited Registered Training Organization (RTO) with the PNG National Training Council– NTC#250. Mr. Roape helped build the program and also trained the NSL staff.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank the management and Board of NSL for believing and trusting in a small local training company. I am grateful to Mr. Paul Sayer and Ms. Morgana Prior for their trust and faith in me to deliver this project. This opportunity provides a great platform on which an MSME such as AGORA can stand on and launch out into the marketplace,” Mr Roape said.
“Nambawan Super Management and Board are committed to supporting its Members to achieve their best retirement and reach their golden years with financial security and dignity,” Mr Roape said.
“The modules are designed and developed for an adult learner and targeted for NSL members. They are aimed to equip and empower NSL members with knowledge of basic financial concepts to improve their knowledge, skills, and attitudes about money and finances so that individuals can make informed financial decisions. The modules are designed to make a person THINK, FEEL and CHOOSE an appropriate action” Mr Roape said.
“Most Contemporary PNGeans are constantly challenged and caught up with the demands of cultural obligation and urgency of modern-day lifestyle and do not have time to work on a budget, investments, or a retirement plan”. Mr Roape said.
“The comprehensive NSL member Financial Literacy Training Program aims to support members by teaching the knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed to achieve long-term financial wellbeing,” Mr Roape said.
