Who won’t know that NCE holders are not going for NYSC? This is a question someone with background knowledge on Nigeria education will be asking – stumbling a post like this.
If we’re sincere, very many admission seekers – especially those who want to consider offers for National Certificate in Education (NCE) programmes are not sure if they will serve after NYSC.
The answer to this question is straightforward. And it’s just NO, you won’t serve after NCE.
Yet, this doesn’t mean you won’t serve at NYSC at all in life. If after NCE you decide to serve, you have other things to add. And below are what you must know upfront.
Why You Won’t Serve at NYSC With NCE
Having said that, only HND and BSC holders are allowed to serve at NYSC in Nigeria. In other words, you must be a graduate of a university or polytechnic (at Higher National Diploma level) before being mobilized.
You Can Proceed for B.ED in Order to Serve at NYSC
You’re now aware that you will need a BSC or HND before you can serve. However, you are not likely going to continue to HND with NCE. Yet, you’re allowed to continue to a university with NCE. If you follow this path, you will be required to spend 3 years more in a university to obtain a degree (usually in education). Then, proceed to NYSC with that.
To some people, the journey is truly long. Three years at NCE plus three years post-NCE is sincerely longer. Compare that with going to a university with a 4-year education programme, you will want to go for the latter.
However, going for NCE will not deprive you of clarion’s call – you now understand what to do next.
