Each participating school and college is provided with a free site licence of the Global Investor simulation games, Finance Lab, and Dealing Room.

"There are many competing resources available but Global Investor is particularly engaging for our pupils."

Steven Rees, Assistant Headteacher, Y Pant School

“Dealing Room is beneficial as an enrichment activity as pupils would have no access to something like this otherwise.  We will integrate this in to classroom use, mainly in the data-handling component of the GCSE course (graphs, averages, etc.).”

Dominic McNabb, Maths Teacher, Glengormley High School

"A fantastic resource developing skills such as decision making, teamwork and problem solving. The pupils love it."

Paul Bulik, Business Studies, Firrhill High School, Edinburgh

“Trading Floor taught us that you have to work well in a team and commit to your particular job in order for the whole team to benefit.  It also helped me to develop skills which would be essential for a job in this area, such as quick thinking and decision making.”

Caoimhe Flanagan, Pupil, Thornhill College
