The management of the National Service Scheme (NSS) has released the first batch of placements for 53,604 prospective national service persons for the 2015/2016 service year as part of reforms of its general operations.
According to a statement signed by the acting Executive Director of the scheme, Dr Michael Kpessa-Whyte, and issued in Accra, the service persons had been deployed into various service modules, including Educational Support, Agribusiness, Urban Traffic Management and Urban Sanitation Management.
The other modules are Community Health, Rural Development, Private Sector Support, General Administration in the various metropolitan, municipal and district assemblies and other user agencies across the country.
The statement said the modules had been developed in line with the scheme’s objectives to meet the developmental and manpower needs of the country.
It called on prospective national service persons to log onto www.nss.gov.gh to check their placements.
It further said that management would not encourage change of postings and urged all prospective service persons to be prepared to accept their placements as part of their contribution towards building a prosperous nation.
It would be recalled that the scheme announced that it would release placements early to give national service personnel enough time to prepare and take up their placements in September 2015.
