The Anambra State Government has initiated the administration of Computer-Based Tests (CBT) for candidates participating in the 2023 teachers’ recruitment process.

Having recruited 5,000 teachers into public schools last year, the state government has now announced the extra hiring of 3,000 teachers for the current year.

The Anambra State ICT Agency, spearheaded by Mr. Chukwuemeka Fred Agbata, is assisting in the coordination of the ongoing tests.

Agbata, in a press release from the Agency, has reported that the test, which began on Thursday, is unfolding seamlessly without any issues.

‘The agency is providing technical support for the process, as the government agency with the mandate to deliver the ‘Everything Technology and Technology Everywhere’ vision of Mr. Governor.

‘What we are looking at is a situation where we provide the millieu for the full exploration of technology across board and there can be no end to the benefits for Anambra people.’

‘That’s Mr Governor’s vision and that’s what we are driving.

‘The applicants are verified by the ICT Agency technical staff with their national identity cards and examination slip before they are alowed into the CBT hall for the examination which lasts for only 30 minutes.’

ASUBEB Chairman Dr. Vera Nkiru Nwadinobi, as quoted in the statement, disclosed that the application portal saw an influx of over 19,500 applications. These applicants have been organized into batches for the examination.

She said: ‘CBT examination is part of the governor’s strategies to train digital teachers, who will drive the vision of digital schools in the state.’

‘There is no way we can have smart schools when the teachers are not ICT compliant, hence the need to conduct the computer-based tests.’
