Though the platform enables all that meet up their requirements to enroll, but it can’t accommodate all the applicants even though they are qualified as over millions of applicants apply every in every application process. Hence, the need for laid down principle of selection that is based on some preferences which I would be sharing in this article but before then let’s talk about the program to sensitize those who still don’t know much about it.
The Npower programming is a Federal Government program to help empowered youths both graduates and non graduates for a period with payment of the beneficiary within the stipulated period. The program has produced two batches A & B, while the portal has just opened for the third batch and application is still ongoing as at the time of this publication.
Npower program is open to both graduates and non graduates, depending on the category.
Below are images that would guide you in understanding the categories you are eligible to apply for.
Now that you must have gone through the categories and ready to apply for it, you need to know this so, you would have a greater chance of been shortlisted and confirmed.
I was a beneficiary of the Batch B, I wasn’t really interested in the program because I believed they have already picked who they want, then I was almost rounding up my National Service. My colleagues were all applying but I decided to just let, me do so to avoid had I know. But while I was applying I figured this secrets out and decided to apply them. Luckily my secret worked for not just me but for those I shared it with, and I was shortlisted did my clearance and I have been enjoying it. I was able to save and establish a business that could bring cashflow.
What are my secrets?
— In every application that is open to the 36 states there be always allocation to every states, the number of beneficiary that must be allocated to the state.
— There is an allocation (number of beneficiary) to the local government within the states.
— There is an allocation to the number of beneficiary to the different communities.
Secondly, there is always preference to the indigenes of the states, local government and communities.
Therefore, if you want to get shortlisted and confirmed choose your state as state of residence, your local government as local government of residence, and lastly, your address should be your family house in the community.
Why should you use your family address in your community?
Many applicants are in the city hence the population of applicants from there would be much thereby making it difficult for you to be chosen but many people in your community may be few because most of them are applying with there address in the city leaving the allocated spaces in the community to be less competed for.
Also, for those choosing Nteach, many schools in the villages lack teacher hence apply from an address in the community is a sure advantage as preference are given to them.
During deployment, they deploy you to the closest place around your address.
