The Inspirational Learning Group was commissioned by The Skills & Growth Company to design and facilitate an interactive Trading Challenge day for 150 KS3 students from across Cheshire East.  The day was supported by Franklyn Financial Management, Thrive Creative, Cheshire East Chamber of Commerce SAS Daniels.

The Trading Challenge is an educational, informative and practical experience which stimulates a real-life trading environment.  Students were challenged to create a new wealth management company with an investment portfolio.  The aim was to make as much money as possible from buying and selling shares.  Students were expected to scrutinise news reports for information which would suggest that share prices were likely to rise or fall before investing £10,000 in imaginary stock.
