A than half of the trainees who were recruited as part of the government’s job programme, the Nation Builders Corps (NABCo) have transitioned into permanent jobs.
These jobs are in both the private and government sector. A good number of the permanently engaged trainees have been recruited by the Ghana Education Service, the Ghana Health Service and the Ghana Revenue Authority. Many other trainees are thriving in the private sector.
The Upper East Regional Coordinator of NABCo, Khan Jambeidu said this when he spoke on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show today, November 8, 2022.
“This is a programme where more than half of the trainees on the programme have successfully transitioned. As we speak, we have less than 60,000 trainees on the programme. Almost 128,00 trainees have come through the programme. Where have all the 70,000 trainees gone? For me, I would have wished that at this particular point in time, we do not have any trainee on the programme depending on whichever pathway exit programme you would have chosen.”
The trainees, Mr Jambeidu explained, appreciate the government’s effort thus far.
“When you speak to the trainees themselves, they appreciate that the government has given themselves the opportunity to learn. Significantly, we managed to get over 70,000 of these guys transitioned into the various career pathways that we have. That’s significant but unfortunately, we still have a number of them on the programme. We are still working on it. You would realise that those with GRA for instance, they are still with GRA and are getting paid by GRA. Before, I think the Ghana Standards Authority also did the same. They are providing significant services to these organisations.”
“We are trying to do that with other institutions. Those who have chosen other career exit pathways, we would do that. While we do that, those who chose permanent employment as their career pathway that we haven’t been able to successfully transition, then, we can get them, if they are interested, we can get them to go through YouStart,” he said.
