"I used Trading Floor for a mixed ability Year 9 enterprise day and the kids loved it. It kept them entertained for five hours of a school day, which is very rare!"

Simon Davies, Maths Teacher, Downlands School, Hampshire

"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
