A taste of City life for students
We held the BP Trading Challenge on 27th May with 25 students taking part, all from top Year 8 and 9 maths sets. It was a chance for students to get a taste of life on the City trading floor.
Students took part from Year 8 and 9
The BP Trading Challenge is a one-day roadshow for 14-19 year-old students, and is free to academies and schools. It was an engaging and fast-paced work-related activity that was delivered by an energetic team of BP presenters. The roadshow gave students the opportunity to put mathematical and enterprise skills into action through an exciting simulation of real-life trading!
Students worked together in teams, competing against each other to trade oil and make a profit, demonstrating skills and values that can contribute towards success in business.
