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

"The interactivity and excitement of Trading Floor enabled us to engage with Year 6 pupils from our feeder schools and give them an experience that would help introduce subjects and themes they will explore in Year 7.  The event was a great success."

Rob Wood, Director of Business and Enterprise, The Wellington Academy, Wiltshire

We used Dealing Room with three different Business Management classes. All of them really enjoyed it and took it very seriously, whilst having fun.  It is invaluable.

Dorothy Ferguson, Business Education Teacher, Knox Academy, East Lothian

"The Investment Challenge competition final at the Cardiff School of Managament gave my students an invaluable insight into a university environment and it showed them how a university differs from a school."

Sarah Rea, Business Studies Teacher, Brynmawr Foundation School

"In the Dealing Room simulation our students used their reasoning, logic and mathematical skills to buy and sell shares. They made links between the demand, the supply and the price of a share.  This activity enabled students to use their mathematical skills in a real life situation. It was excellent.”

Maria Gretchen Garcia, Maths Teacher, Morpeth School
