Skills development

The resource helps develop personal learning and thinking skills, provides a platform for students to demonstrate their Maths and English skills and knowledge, and delivers an authentic work-related learning experience.

When used in conjunction with the simulations, our skills and knowledge measurement and diagnostic tool gives tangible outcomes that your students can use to improve aspects of their course knowledge and skills set.

“Trading Floor doesn't just teach young people about the world of finance – it’s much, much wider than that.  It encourages teamwork, communication and decision-making ability – skills which will be vitally important to them when they enter the world of work."

James Fox, Deputy Head, Writhlington School

“Dealing Room gave me a great insight into how markets operate and allowed me to put some of the theory from my coursework into practice.”

Dean Varley, Economics & Finance BSc, Northern Ireland

"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
