Bank Indonesia’s Master Trainers brainstorming training strategies

Bankers at Indonesia’s central bank, Bank Indonesia, are equipping themselves to deal with the continued uncertainty in the world financial system. A programme co-funded with a grant of nearly S$186,000 from Temasek Foundation, has provided the opportunity for some 22 master trainers from the bank to strengthen their capability in the training and development of finance and banking professionals.

Bank Indonesia’s Human Capital and Development Centre is expecting these master trainers to equip fellow trainers with their newly-learnt knowledge and skills to further develop the Centre’s training and development capacity. As many as 82 trainers have undergone these workshops so far, which have now become an integral part of the Centre’s training calendar. This has been a significant boost for the Centre in its efforts to elevate the standards of training for the 5,000 Bank Indonesia staff that it caters to annually. The centre plans to eventually include training to staff of other Indonesian financial institutions.

Temasek Foundation, which is focused on capacity building, partnered with the Civil Service College and the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy in Singapore for this programme.
