The first batch of placements for 53,604 national service personnel for the 2015/2016 service year has been released by the National Service Scheme.

A statement issued in Accra Friday said the move is “part of reforms of its general operations.”

Acting Executive Director, Dr. Michael Kpessa-Whyte said “the service personnel have been deployed into various service modules including Educational Support, Agribusiness, Urban Traffic Management, Urban Sanitation Management, Community Health, Rural Development, Private Sector Support, and General Administration in the various Metropolitan, Municipal, and District Assemblies, and other User Agencies across the country.”

He adds that the “modules have been developed in line with the Scheme’s objectives to meet the developmental and manpower needs of the country.”

Prospective personnel can log onto to check their placements.

Officials of the Scheme had announced early release of placements to afford the personnel enough time to prepare and take up their placements in September 2015.
