The London Academy of Trading (LAT) is an award-winning, dual-accredited provider of financial trading education and was the first academy in the UK to offer accredited and regulated qualifications in trading. We pride ourselves on providing practical and vocational training courses developed to help individuals to invest or trade in financial markets or for those looking to enhance their employment opportunities within financial markets.
We help our learners apply their knowledge in a real-world, real-time environment, understanding the fundamental and practical aspects of trading. Since our creation in 2010, we have focused on four specific pillars of knowledge to help students improve their skills and understanding: fundamental analysis, technical analysis, trading psychology and risk management.
About the Course:
The LAT Summer Trading School Programme has been designed for school and university students looking for a more vocational approach to finance and trading. Based online, on the LAT trading floor or via a blended combination, students will learn about different financial markets and how they are traded, as well as the practicalities of trading from a fundamental or technical perspective.
The programme looks at a day in the life of a trader, examining both fundamental and technical analysis and evaluation of macroeconomic data. We also discuss trading psychology and investigate the huge effects this can have on trading performance. Students will be given a £50,000 demo trading account to practise their new skills under the watchful eyes of our team of experienced traders and mentors.
Flexible Study Options:
With students in mind, we offer flexibility with all of our courses. We have developed our delivery methods to enable continued interaction for all students to enable you to extract the maximum benefit from whichever course you choose.
Study online, on campus, or via a blended combination
You can pause and restart your course at any time.
You can upgrade from one course to another by just paying the difference in course fees, not the whole fees for both courses.
Our Expert Tutors:
The LAT faculty is comprised of experienced traders and analysts from major financial institutions, including HSBC, Bank of America and Bloomberg. Our team of tutors and trade mentors are available 10 hours a day to provide 1-2-1 help and guidance on any aspect of our courses. We also host three webinars every day in which the experts analyse the markets, answer questions and stimulate discussions to enhance the learning process.
