This year’s batch of National Service Personnel will begin their service on September 1 and postings will be out a week before.

The Executive Director of the National Service Scheme, Mr. Vincent Senam Kuagbenu, said this in Accra on Tuesday, at the 2012/2013 Pre-National Service Orientation Programme for final year students of the University of Ghana, Legon.

He said this year an estimated 65,000 young people are expected to partake in the National Service Scheme, adding that personnel of the scheme would mainly work in government priority areas such as agriculture, health and education.

“About 60% of this number would be in the education sector and 10% in farming. Others would be posted to vital areas such as health, the National Youth Employment Authority and the National Identification Scheme.

Mr. Kuagbenu advised the students not to perceive national service as a punishment that needed to be avoided.
