Training

The Training Department periodically prepares questionnaires to determine the training requirements of all KIA employees for the next three years. According to the results of this survey, a plan is developed to cover the training requirements.

 

As part of KlA's role in the national development of Kuwaiti, a Memorandum of Understanding was signed with the World Bank in October 2004 to provide five Kuwaiti nationals annually (according to the available vacancies in the World Bank) with a two-year job contract to help provide them with the experience in working at one of the World's leading international financial institutions. Initially, funding was shared but in 2007 KIA agreed to fund the entirety of the program. In 2011, Mid-career level employees were made eligible, to give more chances of employment for Kuwaitis to work at the World Bank.
All applicants must meet all job requirements as provided by the World Bank. Each year the World Bank opens recruitments opportunities in its Head-Quarter, Washington, then KIA selects a number of TORs that matches Kuwait needs, and advertises the available vacancies in Kuwait's daily newspapers, Then sends all the applicants papers which meets the World Bank Requirements to the World Bank. Finally, ​The World Bank Video conference the applicants and selects the applicants.
