Kuwait National English School – Secondary Department
Job Shadow session at the ABK BANK (April 2019)
Kuwait National English School undertook a Job Shadow session at The ABK Bank in April 2019. The event was organized by our PR Department and students of Year 10 were involved in the 3 hour session.
It was a positive work experience session and students were introduced to a myriad of banking operations and behind-the-scene activities of a typical bank. An interesting topic was the Business banking department. Students understood how bank loans for business start-ups were sanctioned and the entire procedure was explained in detail by the Branch Manager. Students learned about how customer issues were handled and the training that the bank gave its employees to deal with customer issues. Students also got to go around the bank and observe the employees going about their daily duties and dealing with the customers. The Management Team of the ABK bank was impressed by the students’ questions and complimented the students on their awareness of many aspects of banking. Students also learned the organizational structure of the ABK bank.
All in all students from Kuwait National English School benefitted immensely from the trip and have gained valuable information that can be linked to their study of Business Studies and Accounting.
