"We have found Global Investor to be an excellent resource. Our Year 10 Enterprise Day link-up with the GCSE English ‘Speaking and Listening’ assessment makes for a enthralling and rigorous day for the boys."

Peter Sunley, Head of Economics and Business Studies, Queen Mary’s Grammar School, Walsall

"From entry level through to Masters programmes, Finance Lab gives students an understanding of the financial markets and creates an opportunity for them to test their skills and see how they work under pressure. It gives a reality which develops all sorts of entrepreneurial skills."

Lesley Hyder, Principal Lecturer, Southampton Business School

"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

"I used Trading Floor for a mixed ability Year 9 enterprise day and the kids loved it. It kept them entertained for five hours of a school day, which is very rare!"

Simon Davies, Maths Teacher, Downlands School, Hampshire

We used Dealing Room with three different Business Management classes. All of them really enjoyed it and took it very seriously, whilst having fun.  It is invaluable.

Dorothy Ferguson, Business Education Teacher, Knox Academy, East Lothian

"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
