National service personnel who have been posted to educational institutions that are opened can begin their registration and validation processes, the spokesman for the National Service Scheme has said.
The Scheme’s announcement is a go-ahead for personnel who were posted to educational institutions it asked in an earlier statement to hold on with registration following the postponement of the 2020/2021 academic year.
However, the Public Relations Officer of the Scheme (NSS), Armstrong Esaah has said personnel posted to opened educational institutions could report to their institution of posting for endorsement of their application letters to begin the registration and validation processes.
The spokesperson explained “there is an exception to this directive but some educational institutions are still in session and the personnel posted to those schools can go ahead and register to start the national service”.
“So if you have been posted to GES, District office or any other educational service that is still working then personnel posted to such institutions should get their appointment letters endorsed to start their service.”
According to Armstrong Esaah, the management of the National Service Scheme has tasked the Accounts departments of the Scheme to make arrangement for payment modalities to ensure that Service Personnel who have been asked to hold on with registration due to the temporal closure of their institutions of posting would still receive their payments.
“The accounts and e-zwich department of the national service scheme are making arrangements on payment modalities to ensure personnel who are currently on hold amid the temporal closure of schools receive their pay”
