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.

“It highlights the use of information to make decisions, how information is based on raw numbers, and the ability to use this in making decisions which have a consequence (i.e. losing/making money).”
