The Virtual Bank Work-readiness programme is a fast-track initiative to develop credit management and skills in the sector. Using Virtual Banking technology graduates are trained in a simulated environment to deal with real-life credit applications for an array of different clients. A novel aspect of the programme is that retired credit managers are made available to supervise and mentor graduates.
By applying this combination of experienced human interface, soft-skills training and advanced technology, graduates are able to complete their training and be certified as ‘work-ready’ in just 6 months, halving the conventional 12-month training period. In addition, the programme prepares graduates for a wide range of opportunities across all aspects of banking including retail, corporate and call centre banking disciplines.
