“Dealing Room is beneficial as an enrichment activity as pupils would have no access to something like this otherwise.  We will integrate this in to classroom use, mainly in the data-handling component of the GCSE course (graphs, averages, etc.).”

Dominic McNabb, Maths Teacher, Glengormley High School

"The Investment Challenge competition gives pupils a real feel for what it would be like to work in this industry and it really interests them."

Hannah Thomas, Economics Teacher, St. Joseph's RC High School

Gareth Williams, Head of Economics & Business Studies, The Leventhorpe School
