22nd group of par­tic­i­pants grad­u­ate from ‘ABK Academy’

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

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.
