Phase 3: Skills Training


This is the last phase of the National Youth Service training programme, and recruits are given the opportunity to commence with skills training in one of the following fields up to vocational training level three.

  • Hospitality and food beverage;

  • Plumbing and pipe fitting;

  • Metal Fabrication;

  • Joinery and Cabinet Making;

  • Bricklaying and plastering;

  • Hairdressing and Cosmetology;

  • Automotive mechanics; and

  • Office Administration.

Supplementary Subjects:

Regardless of the trades pursued by the youth, all trainees are compelled to undartake these subjects in order to upgrade their proficiency in general numeracy and literacy with a view to coping with chosen trades.  These are:

  • Information Communication Technology Fundamentals;

  • Communication;

  • Entrepreneurship;

  • Technical Drawing;

  • Mathematics;

  • Engineering Science; and

  • Building Science.

This phase of training is offered for a period of two to three years depending on the trade and the levels offered.  Job attachment is required for all the trades and NYS facilitates the process as the organisation has entered into agreements with various institutions both private and public.
