About Us

The London Academy of Trading 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 invest or trade in financial markets or for those looking
to enhance their employment opportunities within financial markets.
Since 2010, we have stayed committed to our four pillars of knowledge—fundamental
analysis, technical analysis, trading psychology, and risk management—which keep us on
track to show our students how to make the most out of their trading journey. We help our
learners apply their knowledge in a real-world, real-time environment so they understand the
fundamental and practical aspects of trading.

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. With study options
online, face-to-face on the LAT trading floor, or via a blended combination of both, 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.
Get a glimpse into the day in the life of a trader and examine both fundamental and technical
analysis and evaluation of macroeconomic data. Gain a deeper understanding of trading
psychology and investigate the vast effects this can have on trading performance.
Students will be given a £10,000 demo trading account to practise their new skills under the
watchful eyes of our team of experienced traders and mentors.

Flexible Study Options

To keep our programmes flexible and accessible, we have developed online delivery
methods for an uninterrupted flow of learning for all our students. This means you can
extract maximum benefits from whichever course you choose, pause and restart your course
at any time, and upgrade from one course to another just by paying the difference in course
