"First Campus aims to raise educational standards and make sure all activities fully complement the curriculum, enrich studies, encourage participation and are enjoyable.  Stock Market Challenge always ticks every box."

Annie Davies, First Campus, Cardiff Metropolitan University

"There was such a buzz at the Stock Market Challenge. If a team was looking for something that is fun to do and related to financial services then this is a really good opportunity. I would encourage people to do it."

Kathryn McGown, Human Resources Consultant, Standard Life

"Trading Floor helped my pupils develop their core kills of comunication, team-working, analysing information and decision making."

Julie-Anne Hamilton, Business Education Teacher, Inveralmond High School

“Very stimulating.  Today I have seen students who find it very difficult to concentrate on maths being very stimulated and focussed. I am hoping this will be an impetus which will encourage them more in this field.”

Catherina Gilmurray, Maths Teacher, St. Aidanís High School
