Patrick Isedu, the Delta Coordinator, National Directorate of Employment (NDE), says no fewer than 1350 secondary school leavers will benefit from its free Graduate Coaching Scheme (GCS).

Isedu said in Asaba that the scheme was designed to mitigate the current poor performances of students in their external examinations.
He described the poor performances of the students in the West African School Certificate (WASC), National Examination Council (NECO) and JAMB, as disappointing.

According to him, ?this is why we are partnering with the State Government in this direction.?

He said that the scheme, an interventionist approach, would deploy unemployed graduates to conduct remedial classes for deficient students to enable them pass their WASC, NECO and JAMB examinations.

?The overall objective of the scheme is to create jobs for unemployed graduates at the same time help the senior secondary school leavers to remedy their deficiencies and further their education.

“The graduate coaches on the other hand will be placed on a monthly stipend during the period of the remedial classes which will be free of charge for the students,?? the coordinator said.
