3. CA Training Programme
CA Training Programme
In 1997 the Nedbank Group was the first approved training office (ATO) to be accredited by SAICA to offer training outside public practice. The programme offers exceptional study and developmental benefits outside the SAICA framework. Our proven track record of high pass rates bears testimony to the study support we provide for our trainees.

Over the past 16 years, Nedbank has trained and developed a growing number of CAs, who are highly regarded wherever they make their mark, not only because they are inherently talented individuals, but also due to the 'finishing' they received in becoming young professionals. Through the Nedbank CA Training Programme, more than 100 trainees have qualified as chartered accountants over the past 16 years.

Our trainees are afforded the opportunity of having individually tailored rotations across the bank, all with a future career focus. Although rotations are mostly Gauteng-based, there are exciting rotations in London, Durban and Cape Town, for which trainees can apply. The training programme is a designated 3 year learnership.
