It is good news for graduates who are yet to secure any form of employment or missed the previous internship placement after the Public Service Commission (PSC) announced the recruitment of 8, 000 interns for the Fiscal Year 2023/2024.

In a Public Announcement released by PSC Chief Executive Officer (CEO)/Secretary on Tuesday July 25, 2023, seen by Education News, PSC said the recruitment of interns is for government ministries, departments and agencies.

“Public Service Commission is pleased to announce the recruitment of 8000 interns under the Public Service Internship Programme Cohort 6,” the announcement read in part.

A candidate must have a Bachelor’s degree in any discipline from a recognized university, graduated not earlier than 2017 and be proficient in computer skills to be eligible in applying for the post.

The commission said during the internship the interns will be completing duties mutually agreed upon and assigned by the supervisors.

They will also document relevant skills and actively participate in additional responsibilities designed for the program.

PSC said the internship will take 12 months which is non-renewable.

“The interns will be paid a stipend at a rate determined by the government. On successful completion of the internship program they will be awarded certificates,” PSC said.

“Interested applicants are requested to make their applications through the commission’s job portal.”

There has been a teacher shortage in Junior Secondary Schools (JSS) according to education stakeholders and the Teachers employer Teachers Service Commission (TSC) despite the Government hiring a whopping 30, 000 teachers to teach in JSS earlier this year hence the government will be keen to add more intern teachers to deal with teacher shortages in these institutions as experienced countrywide.
