#BeTheDifference: Corporate Social Responsibility

To date the Nedbank CA Training Programme (along with the CA Training Programme) has raised just over R900 000 for various community initiatives, the latest being Matla Combined School, a co-ed school which caters for Grade R all the way through to 12, and currently facilitates around 1 200 pupils. The Nedbank CA trainees planted and established a sustainable vegetable garden to complement the school’s feeding programme.

Corporate Social Responsibility is a great opportunity for us as a Programme to leverage our resources and #BeTheDifference in the lives of those in our communities and country.

What our trainees have to say

“My journey with Nedbank started when the then-CA trainees of the programme held a NedTalk on campus. I was accepted into the programme in the early months of my PDGA/CTA studies. It enabled me to build genuine networks in the bank through different initiatives. I was afforded the opportunity to harness my leadership and people management skills by leading a few initiatives and MCing at our corporate events. This led to my interest in and taking the Head of Marketing position in the programme.”
