According to the Executive Director of the National Service Scheme (NSS), Mr. Osei Assibey Antwi, the scheme’s goal is to become an employable agency that would create career possibilities for the country’s youth.
He stated that the present management of the Scheme is committed to implementing more innovative programs in order to ensure that more service personnel find lucrative and viable jobs following their service.
He stated that the programs would provide service members with the necessary abilities to start their own businesses after each year of service.
Mr. Assibey Antwi said the new focus of the NSS emanated from the fact that statistics showed a rather staggering number of service persons add up to the unemployed numbers each year.
“Per our records, only 24 percent of National Service Personnel reliably find jobs while a whole 76 percent end up jobless at the end of each service year, so we are using these programmes to work on the numbers to turn the figures around”.
He made this known when delivering a speech at the 2021/22 LAD DADE-KOTOPON MUNICIPALITY National Service Personnel Association (NASPA) elections and orientation at the Burma Camp in Greater Accra.
According to him, the newly introduced initiatives include Pathways to Sustainable Employment (PaSE) Project Ghana Tech Lab (GTL), which is currently training 600 service personnel in mobile app and website building skills; Venture Building Program (NSS and University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA), which is grooming 91 service personnel with entrepreneurship skills throughout the service year; and GNSS/Ghana Export Promotion Authority, which is training 63 service personnel with entrepreneurship skills throughout the service year.
Other modules include GNSS/Ghana Enterprises Agency, a program training National Service Personnel in entrepreneurship and provide support in various business fields in the country; the Stanbic Graduate Transition Support Program (GTSP), which is currently providing a sustainable financial support system for National Service Personnel in the areas of financial literacy and business development; the NSS-GTA Support program, which has currently deployed 677 personnel to support the development of tourism in the country;
Youth in Greenhouse Enterprise Project, which is training National service personnel in agri-business field and NSS
Construction and Housing Project which is training Personnel to embark on construction of real estate housing.
According to Mr. Osei -Asibbey Antwi, the initiatives, which are currently running as pilot programmes would be run as fully operational modules with an increased number of personnel intakes by the beginning of the next service year.
“For example, the PaSE project which is currently training 600 personnel in the development of mobile applications and websites will be expanded to train 20,000 personnel by the beginning of next service year,” he explained.
He said the programs were created on the back of careful and in-depth research on the current industry demands that require skillset to propel growth and optimum income.
“All these programs have been introduced to solve problems; we didn’t just create them but we did research and found the problems and we are providing the solutions”, he emphasized.
Mr. Osei Assibey Antwi further urged service Personnel to exhibit good traits in order to uphold the name of the Scheme.
“You are all ambassadors of the Scheme and as such, you have a big responsibility to be respectful to authorities, be time conscious and hardworking because it is only by these traits that you can be recommended to businesses and at the same time project and protect the good name of National Service Scheme” he further stressed”.
