Nation Builders Corps (NABCO) officials are scheduled to begin intensive monitoring of trainees under the programme posted to Pre-Tertiary institutions across the country.
In a related development, NABCO trainees have lamented over the failure of the government to pay them their allowances promptly hence, they continue to work with empty stomachs. Some have called the monitoring exercise for July needless and bogus
“Monitoring won’t change anything ..people are working without pay whereas some people are not working, I mean they have gotten a new job but receive stipends every month so they get away with their bogus monitoring.” A beneficiary posted on Facebook after the official notice was made public.
The monitoring is scheduled to start on July 1st, 2021, and end on the 30th of the same month. The NABCO Educate Ghana Trainees monitoring will be carried out by the regional monitoring teams.
The Nation Builders Corps (NABCO) has therefore urged all those recruited under Educate Ghana to ensure they report to work as expected and be regular.
Document Inspections During Monitoring
The regional monitoring team will as part of their work inspect important official documents of all trainees. The documents to have with you in the month of July as a Monitoring NABCO Educate Ghana Trainee include
1. NABCO Trainee ID
2. Academic Certificates/Qualifications
2. Training logbook
4.Signed timesheet with the contact of your line managers
5. NABCO Educate Ghana Professional Registration – License for Educate Ghana or a PIN/AIN for Heal Ghana Trainees.
“Please note that your absence and or refusal to have the required documents ready when monitors visit can affect your continuation on the programme unless you have already declined or exited,” the statement added.
NABCO further called on all stakeholders to assist its officers to carry out the monitoring exercise at all levels.
Graduate teachers in an “Educate Ghana” programme will focus on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) and other relevant subjects in primary and secondary schools across the country. Also, with the expansion of early childhood facilities and its mainstreaming with basic education, skills upgrading of NABCO trainees could offer possible permanent jobs in kindergartens and preschool settings.
On the technology component of this module, fellows are required to apply their skills in areas such as: library and archival, nonformal education programmes, digital and mobile libraries programme. The Ministry of Education has reviewed its ongoing programmes and have indicated an uptake of over 10,000 NABCO trainees.
