...to help you run a Dealing Room session and talk about their career experiences.

"Trading Floor allowed my pupils to experience proper team working, they learned how to focus for a sustained period, and they saw how Maths can be relevant and real."

Catherine Irvine, Maths Teacher, Edinburgh Steiner School

“Pupils got to apply their learning to a practical situation with no teacher direction, compelling them to work as a team and take responsibility for the roles they were assigned.”

Eoghan Barr, ICT Teacher, St. Columbís College

“I thoroughly enjoyed the Trading Floor experience but my highlight would have been the fierce competition between the rival teams and the tense atmosphere in the room. I enjoyed the fast pace we worked at.”

Aoibheann Harkin, Pupil, Thornhill College

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

Steven Rees, Assistant Headteacher, Y Pant School
