...to help you run a Dealing Room session and talk about their career experiences.

"I just wanted to say a massive thank you! The Stock Market Challenge was an absolutely huge success. It has been the talk of the school. All the staff involved were incredibly impressed with the session. More importantly, the kids were totally engaged, even those who may not be when in lessons! The day was a great success." 

Simon Shaw, Teacher, Malmesbury School

“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 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

"An excellent resource that I will continue to use as it shows pupils how Maths is used in real life and how quickly they have to calculate and think in order to make a profit."

Stephen Dodds, Maths Teacher, Calderglen High School, East Kilbride
