"There was such a buzz at the Stock Market Challenge. If a team was looking for something that is fun to do and related to financial services then this is a really good opportunity. I would encourage people to do it."

Kathryn McGown, Human Resources Consultant, Standard Life

"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

"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
