N-Power is an employment scheme set up by the federal government to help graduates secure the proper training and employment necessary to help the nation's labour force.
According to the N-Power official website: Skills and knowledge are the driving forces of economic growth and social development.
Despite the current high level of unemployment, harnessing Nigeria’s young demography through appropriate skill development efforts provides an opportunity to achieve inclusion and productivity within the country.
Large-scale skill development is the main policy thrust of the N-Power Programme. The modular programmes under N-Power will ensure that each participant will learn and practice most of what is necessary to find or create work.
The N-Power Teacher Corp involves a massive deployment of 500,000 trained graduates who will assist to improve the inadequacies in our public services in education, health and civic education.
