The training was in partnership with the Ghana-India Kofi Annan Centre of Excellence in Information Communication and Technology (AITI-KACE).

“Graduates who enrolled unto the programme over the last 12 months obviously had added some work experience and knowledge as compared to their counterparts who did not take advantage of the programme,” he said.

Dr Anyars said as personnel enters into the final 12 months of the programme, NABCO has come out with the NABCO Trainees Career Pathway Transition Processing Portal.

It is an online platform created for personnel to upload their profile for transition into permanent jobs, entrepreneurship, and further learning processing.

He said this would enable the Nation Builders make personal choices into the next face of their careers and ensure a fair selection process.

The AITI-KACe Director General described the partnership with NABCO as natural with the mandate to bridge the gap between academia and industry to prepare graduates in the various career choice.

He said the students were taken through 80 hours of interactive online lectures and 40 hours of practical hands on experience and presentations.

He said the faculty was made up of 45 experienced and outstanding professionals who imparted their experience and required knowledge into the beneficiaries.

Mr Adu-Gyan said 87 courses divided into seven thematic areas were run, which included Financial Management, Human Resources, Marketing Management, Data Analysis amongst others.

Mr Bowan Mubarak, Director for Business Research and Skill Development, NABCO said about 33,000 personnel registered for the programme, with 4,000 starting but only 540 completed it.
