“Our Year 12 students loved the Enterprise Network competition.  It created a real buzz amongst the competitive ones.”

"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

"From entry level through to Masters programmes, Finance Lab gives students an understanding of the financial markets and creates an opportunity for them to test their skills and see how they work under pressure. It gives a reality which develops all sorts of entrepreneurial skills."

Lesley Hyder, Principal Lecturer, Southampton Business School

“We’ve had some really positive feedback about the Stock Market Challenge from our Year 11 students. A lot of them said it was the best day of their school career!”
