NABCO Update and Next Steps
Out of the 175,066 who signed up to join the Nation Builders Corps, 146,968 applicants successfully completed and submitted their applications. After the submission of the applications, 135,181 were validated for interviews which commenced on Monday June 18th and ended on July 27th.
Further opportunity was given to those who could not book interview within the time given to reschedule their interview. Special arrangements were also made for Persons with Disability (PWD); with mobility access, sign language, interpreters, as well as paper based applications to increase inclusion. These arrangements caused a further extension of the interviews till the 11th of August 2018.
NABCO has consulted broadly among the relevant Stakeholders, the Media, Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies(MMDAs), Development Authorities, Members of Parliament, Civil Society and all government Ministries, Departments and Agencies(MDAs)
Subsequently, upon evaluation of interviews, NABCO convened a jobs placement conference with Module Implementation Partners (MIPs). The main purpose of the conference was for the Module Implementation Partners to declare their workforce needs and to assist NABCO Secretariat in the placement of the applicants to the appropriate units within their organisations. The agreed online portal is now live for the MPIs to use for placement opportunities.
Data from all interview centres across the whole country have been collated and evaluated. Processing and Validation of the data is ongoing and all applicants are expected to received notifications on the status of their applications by the end the month. The NABCO Secretariat intends to send out notifications starting from Thursday 23rd August, 2018. Interviewees are advised to be patient and wait for the SMS alerts, which will offer guidance on their next step. All other Stakeholders should bear with us, as we work to resolve all outstanding placement concerns and issues brought to our attention.
