The National Examinations Council (NECO) has digitalised the recruitment process for examination supervisors and assistant supervisors.


Azeez Sani, the acting director of NECO digital communication, announced the development in a statement on Sunday.

The exam body said the digitalisation is for the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) and the Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE) internal and external.

It said that digitalisation involves migration from the manual recruitment of supervisors and assistant supervisors to an online system.


NECO said the aim is “to check sharp practices in the recruitment process”.

This, the council said, would enhance efficiency and effective service delivery.

“It would ensure that supervisors’ nomination forms, appointment letters and supervisors’ e-photo albums are generated online,” the statement reads.


“Also, routine swapping of Supervisors and Assistant Supervisors during the Examination would be done Online.

“Interested qualified teachers with NCE, Degree Certificate, Master Degrees, PhD and Professors are eligible to apply as Supervisors and Assistant Supervisors for BECE or SSCE Internal or External.”

Before the digitalisation system, the recruitment of supervisors and assistant supervisors was done manually by NECO.

In January, the exam body launched software to facilitate the posting of staff to various parts of the country during its exams.
