Work-related Learning

In its authentic recreation of a simulated working environment, Stock Market Challenge helps young people prepare for and learn about the world of work. 

As an experiential learning activity, it fosters an understanding of the knowledge and skills relating to a particular business sector e.g. financial services. It has direct relevance to the world of work and supports the business sector in its need to create a world-class competitive workforce.

Business leaders, represented by the CBI, want young people to leave schools with the right skills for the workplace. Our collaborations with organisations such as Skills Development Scotland, Financial Sector Skills Council and Education Business Partnerships have helped us develop the resource in a way that makes a tangible contribitution to the skills agenda.

“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 served as a great opportunity to reinforce many mathematical terms and concepts. Students developed an understanding of the knowledge and skills relating to a particular industry sector, with its direct relevance to the world of work."

Mark Bouckley, Assistant Headteacher, Hedingham School, Essex

"The Y12s who took part in the Enterprise Network competition were really motivated by the challenge. To watch the students' efforts and thought processes - not to mention the competition between teams - has been a very positive experience."
