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.

"Dealing Room introduces our pupils to the excitement of numbers, and the importance of the decimal point! Also, to a world of which they have little knowledge, but which is having a major effect on their lives."

Sarah Hodnett, Lead Academic Tutor, Maths, John Madejski Academy, Reading

“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

“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!”

Max Morton, Head of Enterprise, Writhlington School

“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
