Government Jobs in Nigeria

The Federal Government of Nigeria has designed the N-Power Programme to drastically reduce youth unemployment. N-Power is also linked to the Federal Government’s policies in the economic, employment and social development arenas. The modular programmes under N-Power will ensure that each participant will learn and practice most of what is necessary to find or create work. Some of these graduates will also help in actualizing Nigeria’s economic and strategic aspirations of achieving food security and self-sufficiency.

N-Power will also be a platform for diversifying the economy. N-Power is preparing young Nigerians for a knowledge economy where, equipped with world-class skills and certification, they become innovators and movers in the domestic and global markets.

Applications are hereby invited for the position below:

Job Title: N-Power Teacher Corps Programme (N-Power Community Education)

Location: Nationwide
Start Date: 1st August
Duration: 2 years (Participants will undergo an initial induction training prior to deployment)
Certification: National Skills Qualification (NSQ)

N-Power Teacher Corps Programmes
The N-Power Teacher Corps will engage and train 500,000 young unemployed graduates. It is a paid volunteering programme of a 2 year duration. The 500,000 graduates under the N-Power Corps programme will get computing devices that will contain information necessary for their specific engagement, as well as information for their continuous training and development. Participants will provide teaching, instructional, and advisory solutions in key area such as “Community Education“.

Over View
Some members of the N-Power Teacher Corps Programme will be deployed nationally to instruct on:

  • Civic Education
  • Adult Education.

Civic Education is imperative for the development of an informed, effective, and responsible citizenry. Nigeria can only be truly sustained by citizens who have the requisite civic knowledge, skills, and dispositions. The programme will focus on the core values that are vital to nation building such as promoting patriotism, integrity, productivity, ethics, and efficiency. Civic education is essential to sustaining our objectives to build a strong and competitive nation.
The habits of the mind, as well as “habits of the heart,” the dispositions that inform the national ethos, are not inherited. Each new generation is a new people that must acquire the knowledge, learn the skills, and develop the dispositions or traits of private and public character that undergird a productive nation and a constitutional democracy. Those dispositions must be fostered and nurtured by word and study and by the power of example. The values that build a nation must be consciously reproduced, one generation after another. This is what the programme intends to inspire in our nation through the N-Power Community Education instructors.Adult Education will provide instruction that enables young as well as mature adults (above 18 years) to improve or supplement their knowledge and skills within general subjects. From literacy to numeracy, to other skills, this programme will also enhance adults’ ability to improve their future job and educational possibilities. The target group to benefit from the instruction are young as well as mature adults who have no formal education or have never completed junior secondary education or who have a need to improve or supplement their basic education.

In addition, successful applicants will also benefit from a compulsory employability and entrepreneurship skills development programme.
