Due to our links with the Ospreys in the Community/ Tackle Project, we were lucky enough to be invited to visit OSTC ZISHI an international trading company in Swansea. The company gave us first hand experience of trading on the stock markets, advising how to read patterns and explaining how reading data helps make predictions which can then be used to make informed decisions regarding buying and selling shares.
Pupils used a program where they were allowed to buy/sell shares using real data. Prizes were given to those who made the most (or lost the least). This was a first class real life experience of how business works and how it operates in practice, which was a great opportunity for the pupils.
Pupils very much enjoyed the experience and appreciated the time given by ZISHI with prizes given to Tia Sadd and Dafydd Edwards regarding their trading.
Thank you to OITC and Zishi for accommodating CCYD for the experience we are very grateful.
