By on January 7th, 2023. Jamb

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, on Monday, commenced the training of all the administrative staff of tertiary institutions across the country in the Interactive e-Brochure and e-Syllabus System.

The JAMBCLASS reports that the training which held at the six geo-political zones of the country, simultaneously had most of the vice-chancellors, provosts, rectors and other administrative staff of tertiary institutions in attendance.

The examination body had recently announced full automation of its administration and other communication processes to all its stakeholders as a means of eliminating bureaucracy.

The Board mulled the policy after reviewing bottlenecks associated with communicating or interfacing with various institutions regarding admission processes.

The new policy is expected to begin from January, 2023.

“From January, the board will refrain from receiving any physical letter from any institution or agency except through its Interactive e-Brochure and e-Syllabus System”, the registrar of the board, Professor Ishaq Oloyede made this known in a statement made available to our correspondent in Abuja.

Oloyede, who declared the North-Central Zonal workshop opened through a virtual conference at the College of Education, Federal Capital Territory, Zuba, Abuja, assured that correspondence between JAMB and individual institutions would be individualised, which meant that such communication would not be open to third parties, like in the case of WhatsApp.

Welcoming participants to the North-Central workshop, the Provost, College of Education, Zuba, Dr Sule Mundi, lauded JAMB for innovations in its test system.

He said the new initiative would go a long way in further strengthening education in the country.

“Oloyede is really a reformer in JAMB, as he has put every system in place to reduce to the barest minimum hardened corruption and ineptitude in the examination body.

“I have no doubt that your impressive turn-out by the show of attendance and intention for participation at this training is a testimony of your appreciation of the invaluable role of JAMB in continuously finding ways to improve methods of identifying and placing suitably qualified candidates in the available places in all our schools.

“This meeting and training is intended to brainstorm on interactive e-Brochure and e-Syllabus System otherwise referred to as the Interactive Brochure and Syllabus System. We therefore wish to welcome our distinguished facilitators who will be leading us and getting us familiar with this groundbreaking process of automation of curriculum, accreditation, admission, and general administration matters between the Board, tertiary institutions and their regulatory agencies.

“It is my deep conviction that the understanding of this training will ensure seamless communication between JAMB, institutions and their regulatory agencies in addition to providing candidates with the various admission requirements needed from them from their prospective tertiary institutions, ” Dr Mundi stated.

Oloyede, while announcing the take off of the policy earlier, explained that the automation of curriculum, accreditation and general administration mattered among JAMB, regulatory agencies and institutions would provide personalised services to the institutions and agencies as only JAMB and the institution would be able to see any communication on the platform.

“We discovered that we spent our time attending to letters from some major stakeholders of the board, notably the National Universities Commission, National Board for Technical Education and National Commission for Colleges of Education. Apart from these stakeholders, we also receive correspondences from 890 institutions across the country.

“The regulatory agencies often appeal to us for approval of new programmes and accreditation of programmes. And what we receive from institutions is essentially about admissions and registration or accreditation of new courses or quota issue.

“With this platform, if the NUC approves admission quota, it would be centralised in such a way that as soon as you see ‘approved’, everybody will see it and there is no need to write to JAMB,” he initially explained.
