"The Y12s who took part in the Enterprise Network competition were really motivated by the challenge. To watch the students' efforts and thought processes - not to mention the competition between teams - has been a very positive experience."

Nigel Owen, Initiative Leader for Vocational Business, Wales High School

"A very useful tool especially for lessons on finance, the stock market and PLCs.  Pupils really enjoyed the experience and even asked to stay beyond the end of period to continue trading!"

Clare Campbell, Business Education Teacher, Ayr Academy, South Ayrshire

“We use Dealing Room and Finance Lab in our first year BA Accounting & Finance course to help develop students' academic and employability skills, in particular communication, teamwork and numeracy. Student feedback has demonstrated that the simulations make an invaluable contribution to their self-development.”

Helen Hall, Programme Tutor, Accounting & Finance, University of Hertfordshire

“The hall was a hive of activity as students watched the screens with nervous anticipation. Cries of joy and pain could be heard throughout the college as share prices rose and fell. This was a fantastic challenge.”

Ralph Plummer, Assistant Head, Business & Enterprise, St. Joseph's Catholic College, Swindon
