The Ghana National Service Scheme (NSS) has taken a crucial step in preparing for the 2023/2024 service year by releasing enrolment pincodes for 142,381 final-year students.

However, the pincodes do not include individual defaulters seeking enrolment this year, but their pincodes will be released in due course.

With the enrolment process now underway, eligible students are urged to promptly complete the necessary steps to avoid any errors that could impact their eventual deployment.

Accessing Pincodes and Payments:

According to a statement by the NSS, as of Tuesday, August 1, 2023, all prospective national service personnel can access their pincodes by visiting the NSS website HERE and providing their index numbers and date of birth.

To proceed with enrolment, individuals must pay GH¢40.00 either at any Agric Development Bank (ADB) Ltd. branch nationwide or through MTN mobile money (MoMo). For those using MTN mobile money, the payment amount is GH¢41.00.

Enrolment Deadline and Supplementary Lists

All eligible individuals are expected to complete their enrolment by Monday, August 19, 2023.

In order to ensure a smooth enrolment process, accredited tertiary institutions are urged to submit their supplementary final year lists as soon as possible.

These lists will enable the NSS to process additional enrolments and ensure that every eligible student has the opportunity to participate in the national service for the 2023/2024 service year.

Reconsideration of National Service Period:

The NSS is currently contemplating a change to the compulsory 1-year national service period for graduates of public tertiary institutions.

Honourable Osei Assibey Antwi, the NSS Executive Director, revealed that a thorough assessment of the NSS Act is underway, with the intention of proposing an amendment to the national service duration.

In this context, the NSS has examined the national service programs of approximately 20 countries, including Kenya, Gambia, and Namibia.

Within a month, a final draft of the proposed amendment will be submitted to the central government for consideration.

Empowering Graduates with Employment Opportunities:

In a progressive move, the NSS aims to transform into an employable agency in the 2023 academic year.

The objective is to facilitate permanent employment for personnel who successfully complete the mandatory one-year national service.

By bridging the gap between service and employment, the NSS is dedicated to ensuring the long-term career prospects of its participants.
