Nyjamba top scorer in bank’s rigorous induction training for graduates only

With an incredible 94% score, Tuana Nyjamba is the top achiever in the group of thirteen graduates who recently completed their six-months inductions training at Bank Windhoek.

The bank’s Graduates Development Programme follows a rigorous orientation, training and assessment schedule. Tuana had to complete successfully a series of eleven written assessments, as well as several oral assessments and conitnuous observation during the training period.

The bank only considers university graduates who have majored in economics, banking, accounting or business administration for induction into the Graduates Development Programme. Nine of the thirteen candidates are to be placed in branches across the country immediately while five are entering the Accelerated Training Programme for further training. The group comprised five men and eight women. All training was conducted at the bank’s People Development Centre in Windhoek.

During the training, the focus was on the Credit and Collateral modules, with a minimum pass rate of 80%. As part of the course, the graduates were placed in various branches for two months to get real-life banking exposure.

“Bank Windhoek is willing to invest time and energy into this programme, but most importantly, it is the people that we invest in. We need people with new ideas that can challenge us and come up with fresh ideas how to approach situations,” said the Executive Officer for Human Resources, Stephanie Viljoen.

Regarding the nine trainees who have entered the Accelerated Traning Programme, the bank’s human resources business partner, Benster Ntesa said that these candidates are groomed and trained for critical positions, functioning as a resource pool for various vacancies in the branches and in the departments at head office.

Speaking on behalf of the whole group, Sebastian Tjitombo said they see the bank as a pillar of the financial services industry. “It is an honour to be part of this organisation” he said.
