A practical introduction to financial services in the City of London, suitable for any sixth form pupil
Amplify Trading would like to invite schools in the UK to provide their sixth form pupils with a practical insight into the financial services sector, using the same training simulations delivered to the world's largest financial firms.
Sixth form pupils will be able to rotate through different roles in the industry to understand how the city works, and whether finance will be a suitable career path.
The event will be dedicated to your school and held online using our multi-camera virtual room, specifically built to hold the training simulations. Whereas so often learning online can feel like an isolated experience, our simulation technology will help pupils connect and engage in collaboration and competition.
It is and always has been our objective to widen participation in the financial industry. Our technology has been built to allow pupils to gain a practical understanding of the different roles in the industry, no matter what they are studying or their level of financial knowledge. Our training technology has been developed in partnership with many of the world's largest investment banks to Disrupt Graduate Recruitment.
