NSS Outlines Measures To Add Value To Graduates For Employment Sustainability

The National Service Secretariat (NSS) in it's quest to end graduate unemployment in the country, has outlined stringent measures to add value to graduates deployment.

According to the NSS, the era where newly graduated students are deployed to various agencies and later rendered unemployed after their year long service is over.

Addressing the media in Accra, the Executive Director of the National Service Secretariat (NSS), Osei Assibey Antwi indicated that, the rate at which graduates keeps increasing yearly due to Free SHS is projected to be outnumbering the available jobs, hence the need to add value to graduates to ensure they are maintained after their end of service.

Osei Assibey Antwi added that, about 51,000 graduates were posted to the educational sector for a 10 day pedagogy training this year.

He said his expectations are that by the time the graduates are done with their National Service, those who want to take teaching as a career, would have gotten to know much about that with a certificate.

Moreover, Mr Osei Assibey Antwi said the NSS outlook for the year 2023 is to enhance the National Service Scheme's Internal Generated Fund (IGF) mobilization to reduce the dependency on the central government.

He added that they will develop a relationship with state agencies such as Ghana Enterprises Agency, Youth Employment Agency, YouStart to enable graduates get enrolled after service.
