Trading Floor

Trading Floor is designed for outreach and enrichment activities or induction days and enables students to experience the excitement of buying and selling on a real open outcry trading floor.

The game provides a rewarding and enjoyable activity that is a gateway to developing or demonstrating an understanding of business and finance. It will also help students develop their personal, learning, thinking and functional skills. 

In recreating the excitement of a real trading floor, the activity provides a platform for students to learn how to work together as a team, solve problems under pressure, analyse information and communicate effectively.

"The Investment Challenge competition gives pupils a real feel for what it would be like to work in this industry and it really interests them."

Hannah Thomas, Economics Teacher, St. Joseph's RC High School

“Trading Floor and Dealing Room show our students how their maths skills are needed and can be applied in the real world.”

Dermot Gallagher, Head of Business Studies, St. Brigidís College

“Dealing Room is beneficial as an enrichment activity as pupils would have no access to something like this otherwise.  We will integrate this in to classroom use, mainly in the data-handling component of the GCSE course (graphs, averages, etc.).”

Dominic McNabb, Maths Teacher, Glengormley High School

"I just wanted to say a massive thank you! The Stock Market Challenge was an absolutely huge success. It has been the talk of the school. All the staff involved were incredibly impressed with the session. More importantly, the kids were totally engaged, even those who may not be when in lessons! The day was a great success." 

Simon Shaw, Teacher, Malmesbury School
