Banango Traders Entrepreneurship Programmes
Banango Traders is a highly stimulating and competitive business simulation game that is at the core of all the programmes we offer and it is guaranteed to bring curriculum content to life. The programme will not only entertain learners but, more importantly, it will teach them valuable financial, planning and strategising skills.
The Banango Traders simulation game is facilitated by a presenter from the Johannesburg School of Finance and can be played during the course of a school day at school. In addition to the simulation learners complete subject and grade specific assessments that are of the highest standard and have been moderated and approved. It is fun, educational, relevant, controlled and very easy to implement.
The program has been tried and tested for over 15 years at more than 250 schools nationwide and the outcome of every game remains the same: that finance can be fun! Through Banango Traders, many thousands of people have discovered how much fun business strategising can be!
Banango Traders programmes are fun, stimulating and interactive. Our experienced presenters are passionate about what they do and how they teach and they bring their own entrepreneurial skills to the game. The Banango Traders Entrepreneurship programmes are guaranteed to take the “fear factor” out of finance and put back the fun! Courses are presented in both English and Afrikaans.
