LAT was also noted as providing a wide selection of courses that cater to students with varying levels of financial trading knowledge to further hone their skills for personal and professional purposes.

Commenting on the award, Paddy Osborn, Academic Dean at LAT, said: “We are delighted to have been named ‘Trading Academy of the Year’ once again. This is great news for us at LAT following a very challenging 2020. When Covid lock-down first hit in March 2020, we quickly adapted the delivery of our programmes to 100% online, with several hours a day of live, interactive webinars and analysis sessions.
“We’ve been thrilled with the positive feedback received from students, and this award is recognises the continued hard work and dedication of our academic team, as well as the flexibility of our students. Providing a first-class student experience is at the heart of what we do, so it is great to be recognised and appreciated for this approach.”
