“The hall was a hive of activity as students watched the screens with nervous anticipation. Cries of joy and pain could be heard throughout the college as share prices rose and fell. This was a fantastic challenge.”

Ralph Plummer, Assistant Head, Business & Enterprise, St. Joseph's Catholic College, Swindon

“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

"We have just used the Trading Floor simulation for our Enterprise Day. It was amazing. The pupils loved it."

Steve Little, Head of Business Studies, Cockburn College of Arts, Leeds

“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
