Statistical Service Recruits Graduates for Census Pre-Certification
Recruitment for prospective Regional Trainers by the Ghana Statistical Service (GSS) is ongoing.
Applicants are being recruited to participate in a Pre-Certification Training Programme of Trainers for Censuses.
The training programme will equip participants with the tools to effectively communicate key concepts to Data Field Officers as well as build capacity in important areas such as presentation skills, classroom management, and leadership.
The pre-certification of trainers will make them eligible to be trainers for all national censuses and surveys conducted by the Statistical Service.
Regional Trainers who successfully complete the training programme will be invited to work in their district of residence during the upcoming Population and Housing Census, which is scheduled to happen in April to May of 2021.
The conduct of the Census is in accordance with the objectives of Ghana Statistical Service (GSS) to provide quality, relevant, accurate and timely statistical information for the purpose of national development as stipulated in Clause 3 of the Statistical Service Act, 2019 (Act 1003) and oversight of capacity building in the statistical ecosystem.
The pre-certification training programme will combine virtual with in-person modules and will run for four months from November 2020 to March 2021.
After completing the pre-certification programme and carrying out their duties as Regional Trainers, they will be required to perform in other capacities such as Supervisors, Monitors and Report Writers. As such, trainers engaged for the 2021 Population and Housing Census must be available from the start of training through to the end of the census period.
The application process is free.
Eligible individuals with a first degree or equivalent experience as a trainer for censuses/surveys are encouraged to apply online through https://phc2020.statsghana.gov.gh.
