22nd group of participants graduate from ‘ABK Academy’
KUWAIT: Al-Ahli Bank of Kuwait (ABK) congratulated the 22nd group of students who recently graduated from the ‘ABK Academy’, during a ceremony that was held for the 16 participants who successfully completed the four-week intensive program.
The 22nd round of training consisted of two main parts. The first was classroom facilitation focused and the second was ‘on the job’ training, whereby the candidates had the opportunity to be fully engaged in the work culture within the bank, and the day to day operations that presented them with a valuable hands on experience.
ABK Academy has graduated a total of 498 candidates to date; preparing a substantial number of individuals to take on jobs within the bank. This type of involvement and contribution is of tremendous value not only to national youth, who gain a wealth of insight into banking as a profession, but also to the bank who has the chance to train and employ local talent.
Kuwait’s youth have always been of primary interest to ABK. With the launch of the ABK Academy in 2009, the bank has been able to encourage youth to consider a career in banking. The Academy covers multiple areas in the banking profession, with particular focus on customer service, which is the backbone of any successful company.
The ABK Academy was launched as an educational platform that focuses on training students and individuals seeking a job opportunity in the banking sector. By engaging with these participants, the bank is able to build on existing potential and talent, and better identify the areas in the bank, in which they could put this positive energy to work.
