Key Benefits:

Practical Skills

Stock Market Challenge gives students the opportunity to apply and develop their understanding of mathematics and their reasoning skills in a practical activity which demonstrates how numbers function in a real world context.

Aspects of the curriculum

Stock Market Challenge delivers many aspects of the Business Studies and Economics curricula in a real and immersive working environment.

A Bridging Project

For both Business Administration & Finance and Creative & Media students, Stock Market Challenge is an invaluable applied learning opportunity. Go to the Skills section of the site to see how it develops Functional and PLT Skills, a key element of the Diploma.

Case Study

Available in both French and Spanish, Stock Market Challenge provides a unique opportunity for language students to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding in an immersive environment.

Functional Skills and Personal, Learning & Thinking Skills are core components of the 14-19 curriculum. Stock Market Challenge, adaptable to different age groups and learning environments, allows students to develop these skills through game-based learning.

The resource has been designed as an immersive activity suitable for enrichment activities at both KS3 and KS4. It assists in the development of the cross-curricular areas of Skills Development, Enterprise, Financial Capability, Work-related Learning and PSHE.

Since 2003 Stock Market Challenge has been run throughout the UK as an inter-schools competition. The events bring together 20 to 30 local schools or colleges in each region and are sponsored and supported by a number of universities, EBPs and businesses. Since its inception, over 5,000 Year 9 to Year 12 students from hundreds of UK schools and colleges have taken part.

"The Investment Challenge project brings 'real life' experiences to our pupils which are very valuable to this age group.  It is a positive influence."

Laura Atwell, Business Studies Teacher, Brynmawr Foundation School

 “A motivational and learning tool for the business and enterprise teacher that will knock the students' socks off! There is simply nothing better on the market."

Colin Kilpatrick, Head of Business Studies, St. Edward's Secondary School, Poole

“Trading Floor taught us that you have to work well in a team and commit to your particular job in order for the whole team to benefit.  It also helped me to develop skills which would be essential for a job in this area, such as quick thinking and decision making.”

Caoimhe Flanagan, Pupil, Thornhill 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
