MANDATE OF THE NATIONAL SERVICE SCHEME

The Ghana National Service Scheme (NSS) operates under the Ghana National Service Scheme Act of 1980, Act 426, which replaced NRCD 208 of 1973. Under the new Act, National Service Personnel (NSP) are required to render a mandatory service for a period of two years including a minimum period of six months military training. However, in 1995, the two  year duration was changed to one-year.

 

The Scheme as currently constituted provides newly qualified graduates the opportunity to have practical exposure on the job, both in the public and private sectors, as part of their civic responsibility to the State.  It also provides user agencies the opportunity to satisfy their manpower needs and affords communities that would otherwise have difficulty in accessing mainstream development initiatives, access to improved social services through community service.
