The National Service Scheme (NSS) has disclosed that the 2020/2021 service period will officially commence on Monday, 7 September 2020.
A statement released by the Secretariat on Monday, August 31, 2020, indicated that it has released postings of 86,478 eligible graduates from accredited tertiary institutions.
Additionally, postings of private registrants who enrolled for the 2020/2021 national service to various user agencies across Ghana have been released.
The statement, however, noted that “service personnel deployed to educational institutions are directed to hold on with their registration and validation until schools officially re-open.”
According to the statement, prior to the commencement of their service period, “registration and validation would begin at all centres across the country” from September 3, 2020, for all national service personnel,” while detailing the procedures involved.
“All eligible national service personnel are, therefore, a requested to log onto the Schemes website at www.nss.gov.gh to check their placements and then proceed to the various user agencies to endorse their appointment letters before they book appointments online for registration and validation at designated centres in the regions,” the statement read.
The management noted that the registration and validation processes will be “implemented in response to the COVID-19 pandemic directives” in order to prevent congestion at registration centres.
It added that the management of NSS will not encourage the change of postings for service personnel, adding that they should accept their postings and contribute to nation-building.
