Skills development

The resource helps develop personal learning and thinking skills, provides a platform for students to demonstrate their Maths and English skills and knowledge, and delivers an authentic work-related learning experience.

When used in conjunction with the simulations, our skills and knowledge measurement and diagnostic tool gives tangible outcomes that your students can use to improve aspects of their course knowledge and skills set.

"Trading Floor allowed my pupils to experience proper team working, they learned how to focus for a sustained period, and they saw how Maths can be relevant and real."

"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

“I went to the Investment Challenge hoping to learn about investments and the pressurized atmosphere of the stock exchange. I ended up having one of the best evenings since I've been at university. It was a frantic and testing event, but it was absolutely thrilling!”

Munro Stewart, Student, University of Dundee
