Pull Quote: “Students should make use of the platform provided to them” - Esther Shakela, acting secretary of information and communication technology

The Namibia National Students Organisation (Nanso) launched an assistance centre for students, trainees and learners on 10 June.

The centre will attend to students’ enquiries physically and telephonically.

This is solely Nanso’s initiative and has received immense support from the student representative councils of Nust, Unam, IUM and Triumphant College.

These are the following services to be offered at the centre:

· General academic enquiries for students, learners and trainees.

· NSFAF enquiries.

· Namibia Qualifications Authority (NQA) enquiries.

· Grade 11 and 12 national examinations enquiries.

· Registration.

· Accommodation enquiries.

· Psychosocial support.

· Tutorship.

Esther Shakela, Nanso’s acting secretary of information and communication technology, says students who want to volunteer at the centre are more than welcome. They can contact the secretary of education, training and research.

Shakela invites students to make use of the centre. “You should maximise the platform that has been offered to you and … there is telephonic support available too,” she says.
