A certificate presentation ceremony was held yesterday at the Group’s Training Centre in Kiarong for 23 employees who successfully completed the course.  16 were awarded the certificate of completion while the rest received the certificate of participation.

The course, facilitated by Alliance Francaise, was held over a period of eight weeks between May and June 2009, at the end of which participants were required to sit for a test to assess their competency based on the following criteria: listening, speaking, reading, writing, vocabulary and grammar.  Candidates who pass the assessment earn the chance to move to the next level of the course and were awarded the certificate of completion.  This is the third time that such a course has been held for employees of the Group.

The certificates were presented by the Guest of Honour, His Excellency, Mr Louis Le Vert, French Ambassador to Brunei Darussalam. He remarked that French is not an easy language to learn, and expressed his delight to see the keen interest shown by Baiduri employees to learn the language.

In his welcome remark, Mr Raymond Bariou, Senior Deputy General Manager of Baiduri Bank said, “At Baiduri Bank, we are fully committed to developing our employees.  Besides providing courses in professional studies, we also provide soft skills training for personal development. This French language course is one of them."

Also present at the ceremony were Ms Anais Maro, Director of Alliance Francaise Brunei Darussalam; Ms Julie Bruel, Education and Cultural Attaché at the French Embassy; Mr Florent Labbe, the course trainer; Mr Ti Eng Hui, Deputy General Manager, Retail Banking and Branch Network; Ms Veronica Chong, Senior Manager, Personnel and Finance and senior executives of Baiduri Bank Group.
