Report Post

London Academy of Trading (LAT) has been named ‘Trading Academy of the Year’ by the 2019 London Prestige Awards.

This award recognised LAT as a business that provides a personal approach towards their students and high quality of service and student experience. After a period of sustained growth and development, the award was also given for LAT’s innovative approach to new ideas, including new courses in Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain, Practical Options Trading, and a Postgraduate Certificate in Financial Investments and Trading.

LAT’s flagship Level 5 Diploma in Applied Financial Trading was the first financial trading programme to be formally accredited in the UK, and our short courses have since been accredited by CPD. The London Academy of Trading is itself accredited by the British Accreditation Council, which enables international students to study in London on short-term study visas.

Upon receiving this award, Dessy Ohanians, CEO of LAT, said: “Having the confidence to pursue awards is a testament to the hard work put in by our staff and tutors. We have a vision to broaden the opportunity of education for everyone, and this award is evidence that our achievements are being recognised.

“I believe the judges appreciated the work we do in making trading an accessible professional pursuit for people of all ages, backgrounds and from all over the world, thanks to our flexibility and online learning facilities.”

Paddy Osborn, Academic Dean, also said: “LAT is a truly modern school, utilising the skills and experience of market professionals to impart valuable knowledge to an ever-increasing number of people looking for practical and employable skills.

“We are proud to be recognised for our efforts in providing individuals with the relevant skills and insights to prepare them for a career in trading, or indeed for careers across many different sectors. Winning ‘Trading Academy of the Year’ shows that the our approach is being recognised.”
