Training or orientation is provided to persons interested in knowing more about how the Grameen Bank works. Emphasis is put on exposing participants to GBs fieldwork and enabling them to learn for themselves by observing activities at first hand and obtaining information from people doing the job on a day-to-day basis.

The primary goals of training at Grameen Bank are to arouse curiosity in the mind of the trainee and to stimulate interest in the subject itself. This method of training involves leaving the responsibility of learning to the participants. It is based on the belief that interest generated in the mind of a person enables him/her to discover his/her role in the organization, and allows the person to experience both the excitement of discovery and the satisfaction of facing a challenge.

Grameen Bank makes its trainees responsible for learning as well as for teaching. Participants with their new ideas, new viewpoints and innovations, have always enriched the operative principles of GB in the past. We believe that this tradition will remain unbroken.

Different kinds of programs are arranged according to the background of the participants and their needs. A person from a field program will have different requirements than a person from a coordinating agency and a person working at the policy level will have other priorities than a person involved in implementation.
