Start Smart Pathways

Since it began in 2012, the Start Smart Pathways program has delivered its workshops to over 330,000 vocational students across Australia.

The Commonwealth Bank is very proud of its investment in the Start Smart financial education program and remains committed to its purpose of improving the financial capability and well-being of young Australians. 

Whilst the Primary and Secondary programs continue, the Start Smart Pathways program will conclude as of June 30th, 2018. Instead, we are working on alternative ways to deliver this content to better service the needs of the vocational audience within the rapidly changing education environment.
