Enterprise

The Trading Floor game is designed for larger group enrichment activities or enterprise days.  Students, working in teams, buy and sell as if they are on a real stock market trading floor.

The game content is the same as the Dealing Room version but trades are made using paper shares, banker’s drafts and dollar bills of exchange.  Prices are quoted in round numbers to make the game more accessible and simplify the recording of trades.

The TV and radio news is broadcast on the market screen but news stories are provided in newspaper form. The simpler interface and use of paper materials makes it easier to manager for larger groups and suitable for younger and for mixed ability pupils.

We work in partnership with Innovative Enterprise, who specialise in the delivery of Stock Market Challenge as in-school activity.  For further information, visit Innovative Enterprise or contact Andrew Bernard directly on 0800 434 6424 or by email.

“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

“Dealing Room helps with both classroom teaching and enrichment.  It’s an excellent resource for using Maths across subjects and enhances numeracy in any subject.”

Michelle McCoy, Business Studies Teacher, St. Joseph’s Grammar

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
