North Wales Inter-school Event

The events

Your teams of Year 12 students will be competing against other schools during a session of simulated trading on the financial markets, making decisions under pressure, taking calculated risks and experiencing the excitement of the trading floor.

This enjoyable and rewarding challenge will give your students an insight into career opportunities within the financial services sector and help them develop important skills such as communication, problem-solving and working with others.

The resource

All participating schools will be given free use of the Global Investor resource - Finance Lab, Dealing Room and Trading Floor – for the year.  

The resource has applications for 14-19-year-olds in Applied Maths, STEM, Business Studies and Economics so schools should find it to be a valuable asset across the curriculum. 

Subject areas supported

Applied Maths, STEM, Business Studies, Economics, Key Skills, Financial Capability, Enterprise, and Work-related Learning.

“We use Dealing Room and Finance Lab in our first year BA Accounting & Finance course to help develop students' academic and employability skills, in particular communication, teamwork and numeracy. Student feedback has demonstrated that the simulations make an invaluable contribution to their self-development.”

Helen Hall, Programme Tutor, Accounting & Finance, University of Hertfordshire

“My pupils learned how to put their skills to use in a competitive and practical setting.  Individuals within teams can put their personal attributes to use for the common good of the team”

David Moody, Maths Teacher, Rockport School

"A very useful tool especially for lessons on finance, the stock market and PLCs.  Pupils really enjoyed the experience and even asked to stay beyond the end of period to continue trading!"

Clare Campbell, Business Education Teacher, Ayr Academy, South Ayrshire

"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
