"Global Investor is a great resource.  It is suitable for different year groups and different stages."

Shanead Friel, Head of Business Education, St. Columba's High School, Clydebank

“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 allows pupils to apply their understanding of mathematics to a real life situation in such a creative and refreshing way. I have written this into the scheme of work for all our KS4 classes. It's FAB!"

Lindsay Porter, Head of Maths, Moorside High School, Salford

The Global Investor simulations are superb.  The program works for all ages at secondary and all ability levels and the pupils are completely engrossed in the experience.  It teaches all pupils about the way the world of finance works in a fun and easily accessible way.
