Enterprise

The Trading Floor game is designed for larger group enrichment activities or enterprise days.  Students, working in teams, buy and sell as if they are on a real stock market trading floor.

The game content is the same as the Dealing Room version but trades are made using paper shares, banker’s drafts and dollar bills of exchange.  Prices are quoted in round numbers to make the game more accessible and simplify the recording of trades.

The TV and radio news is broadcast on the market screen but news stories are provided in newspaper form. The simpler interface and use of paper materials makes it easier to manager for larger groups and suitable for younger and for mixed ability pupils.

We work in partnership with Innovative Enterprise, who specialise in the delivery of Stock Market Challenge as in-school activity.  For further information, visit Innovative Enterprise or contact Andrew Bernard directly on 0800 434 6424 or by email.

“Dealing Room gave me a great insight into how markets operate and allowed me to put some of the theory from my coursework into practice.”

Dean Varley, Economics & Finance BSc, Northern Ireland

"The interactivity and excitement of Trading Floor enabled us to engage with Year 6 pupils from our feeder schools and give them an experience that would help introduce subjects and themes they will explore in Year 7.  The event was a great success."

Rob Wood, Director of Business and Enterprise, The Wellington Academy, Wiltshire

"Dealing Room introduces our pupils to the excitement of numbers, and the importance of the decimal point! Also, to a world of which they have little knowledge, but which is having a major effect on their lives."

Sarah Hodnett, Lead Academic Tutor, Maths, John Madejski Academy, Reading
