FT for schools
The FT's free online subscriptions to students aged 16-19, their teachers and schools around the world is a very valuable resource for all Economics and Business teachers.
The Financial Times offers a free digital subscription to schools around the world who have students aged 16-19. This allows teachers to access and use articles, charts, data and video in their teaching and learning and allows learners the chance to broaden their reading and knowledge.
The first step is for a teacher or administrator to complete the simple registration form to get access.
On the registration page teachers can check whether their school is already registered and if so, request a link directly allowing them to create individual accounts.
Once registered, students and teachers can create individual accounts so they can read online at home and on mobile, and download the FT app. They will also receive a weekly email with highlights and recommended reading.
Subscribing teachers get access to a list of articles, sorted by topic with suggested questions and tasks to use in class.
