CIBN Endorses Union Bank Academy 


The Chartered Institute of Bankers of Nigeria, CIBN, has given full accreditation status to Union Bank Learning Academy after confirming its compliance to regulatory standards and best practices.

By this, the Academy can now operate in a full capacity to boost its human capacity development efforts. The latest development further underscores the bank’s commitment to the development of its employees as outlined in its Employee Value Proposition, a framework hinged on five critical levers including learning and career development.

In his remark, Executive Director, Service and Technology Union Bank, Nath Ude commended the CIBN’s efforts at improving the banking profession by way of training and capacity building.

The bank’s Head of Human Resources, Miyen Swomen, added: “This accreditation also signals another very important milestone in our human capacity development efforts. Our people are a pivotal part of our ongoing transformation programme and this endorsement by the CIBN is a validation of our efforts in this direction.”

Congratulating the bank on the feat, President and Chairman of Council of CIBN, Prof. Segun Ajibola said:

“I have no doubts in my mind that this accreditation will put you in a more comfortable position towards achieving your mandate and improving the quality of your offerings as a Bank.” The certificate of accreditation and the technical report has a validity of two  years and allows for the exemption of trainees who are successful at the Union Bank Entry Level from 10 courses from a total of 19 in the CIBN professional certification examination.
