The Republic Bank Family Welcomes Another Batch Of Apprentices

Republic Bank welcomed the eighth batch of Youths, at a simple Ceremony to launch the Bank’s Youth Link Apprenticeship Programme, on Monday, October 19, 2015 at the Pegasus Hotel, Kingston, Georgetown.

Thirty-one (31) Apprentices comprised this new batch and over the next seven months, they will experience classroom and on-the-job training across the Bank’s network of Branches, thus enabling them to be more marketable in their career pursuits.

They will also be exposed to community care and will learn how to understand the needs of the less fortunate, through the ‘Care-A-Van’ aspect of the Apprenticeship Programme.

A day of fun and relaxation is also part of the experience when the group visits a local resort and enjoys a day of team-building.

Importantly, this group of young men and women will be the second set of Apprentices to benefit from the Competency Based Education (CBE) programme which was introduced in 2014.

At the end of the Programme, successful Apprentices will receive a National Vocational Qualification Certificate as a Certified Bank Clerk issued by the CTVET. The certificate can be used when seeking employment for certain entry level jobs.

The Youth Link Apprenticeship Programme was introduced in Guyana in 2008 after being part of the Republic Bank Limited, Trinidad and Tobago Power to Make a Difference initiative for over twenty years. The programme was developed to bridge the gap between the end of the participants’ school life and the start of their career.

The programme is geared to guide the Apprentices through a process of personal and professional growth and includes facets that when combined, will teach the youths valuable skills for professional and social development.
