Learn what it takes to succeed as a financial trader and gain the practical skills that financial institutions are looking for.
Our accredited programme will allow you to gain experience, exposure and credentials through a highly practical and structured programme designed to prepare you for a rewarding career in all divisions of banking, finance and trading. The course can be taken on-site, online, or through a combination of the two. You also have the option of choosing the full-time mode, lasting 3 months, or our part-time mode, which takes 5 months to complete.
The financial sector offers progressive opportunities for individuals with the passion and drive to succeed. However, in recent years getting a foothold in the City has become increasingly difficult, with graduate programmes and budgets for in-house education programmes being cut. The key now is to gain practical experience and role specific transferable training in a professional and corporate environment.
Today, it is down to future employees to equip themselves with the skills required to step straight into a job by ensuring they are one step ahead of other graduates. This can be achieved through our diploma programme, which delivers practical experience and qualifications in addition to your existing accomplishments.

Go back to school for a trade
Some place accredited where you can get financial aid. I say trade because those programs are usually short to complete, maybe 6 months, maybe a year and you can be out earning.
Make sure the trade you choose is in an industry that isn't saturated. A poster earlier today said she wanted a career outside of being a hairdresser because the money was bad...so unless you're in an area where stylists are in high demand I wouldn't choose that.
