ABB Graduate in Training Programme in Modderfontein 2019
ABB’s Graduate in Training Programmes are designed using the 70:20:10 system in Learning and Development. This means the programmes observe and apply the concept that learning is of three different types and is 70% Hands-on, 20% Asking Questions and 10% Classroom. The programmes also equip interns with soft skills that allow them to create their own identity and connect easily with co-workers. In addition to soft skills, the programmes also teach the equally important technical skills (hard skills). As interns, they have access to industry professionals, learn about ABB products via the online Learning Management system and classroom training. Interns will also be working hands-on with various ABB products and systems.
