KS4

GCSE Business Workshop Series

Project Description

The GCSE Business support session is designed to stimulate interest and support Year 10 Business GCSE students with their studies. It currently features one day on campus followed by two short follow up visits in their school over the following two weeks.

Whilst on Campus they will interact with the Cardiff Metropolitan University’s business staff and students, the live trading Bloomburg Suite, Cardiff School of Management and the wider Llandaff Campus through a series of short lectures, tours and presentations.

On campus, the students will be introduced to trading software that they will use over the duration of the project to develop their understanding of business ownership models and the stock market. After the two-week period, the pupils who have the best performance on the trading software will be announced.
