Barclays Bank Ghana, in line with its transition to Absa, has upgraded its ReadytoWork e-learning platform.
The look and feel of the ReadytoWork web portal has also been fully refreshed to reflect Absa’s new brand and digital focus.
In the bank’s recent ReadytoWork engagements with over 500 final year students from the University of Ghana, Presbyterian University College and Central University, the participants were introduced to the new portal which is designed to acquaint them with the possibilities in the world of work for the youth.
The Ready-to-Work programme is the bank’s flagship digital learning curriculum initiative that helps to prepare young people for the transition from school to the world of work. It empowers young people with the skills they need to enhance their employment or self-employment prospects.
Speaking on the new upgraded curriculum and portal at a ReadytoWork session at the University of Ghana, the Head of Citizenship at Barclays Ghana, Priscilla Yeboah said “The enhancement is to improve the functionalities and enrich the modules with topics such as Emotional Intelligence and Agility, which will give users insight into these contemporary competencies employers expect from new hires”.
As Barclays transitions to Absa by early next year, Mrs Yeboah indicated that the bank will deepen its commitment towards supporting the upskilling of the Ghanaian youth.
The Ready-to-Work initiative is under the Education and Skills Development programme. Apart from Ready-to-Work, the bank has also disbursed close to 500 tertiary scholarships under this programme since 2017.
