The Federal Government will begin to receive applications online for 500,000 teaching jobs on June 12, the Senior Special Assistant to the Vice President on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande, has said.
In a statement yesterday, Akande advised unemployed youths to apply through the internet portal, npower.gov.ng that would be opened on June 11.
“The N-Power Teacher Corps initiative which will engage and train 500,000 young unemployed graduates is a paid volunteer programme of a two-year duration.
“Besides their monthly take home pay estimated at about N23,000, the selected 500,000 graduates will also get computer devices that will contain information necessary for their specific engagement, as well as information for their continuous training and development. They get to keep the devices even after exiting from the programme,” the statement added.
