Work-related Learning

In its authentic recreation of a simulated working environment, Stock Market Challenge helps young people prepare for and learn about the world of work. 

As an experiential learning activity, it fosters an understanding of the knowledge and skills relating to a particular business sector e.g. financial services. It has direct relevance to the world of work and supports the business sector in its need to create a world-class competitive workforce.

Business leaders, represented by the CBI, want young people to leave schools with the right skills for the workplace. Our collaborations with organisations such as Skills Development Scotland, Financial Sector Skills Council and Education Business Partnerships have helped us develop the resource in a way that makes a tangible contribitution to the skills agenda.

“Trading Floor is an excellent simulation. I really enjoyed the game environment and having to make quick decisions under pressure."

"This is an excellent programme which the students thoroughly enjoyed.  It offered learning opportunities which are difficult to provide in a normal school timetable."

Dermot Gallagher, Head of Business Studies, St. Brigidís College

We used Trading Floor for an enterprise day which involved all years on a carousel basis. The students absolutely loved it - the competition between groups was immense!  The high quality resources gives the game a professional look and makes the students think it is far more realistic.  It gives students a valuable application of Maths in the real world.

Simon Hetherington, Head of Mathematics, Al Yasmina School
