The Ministry of Basic and Senior Secondary Education has the statutory mandate and authority to coordinate and formulate all educational activities and policies in Sierra Leone.
The yearly School Census (ASC) is an activity designed to gather, collect, analyse and disseminate education data related to schools, social infrastructure, and learning outcomes.
These analyses form the basis for country-wide expertise of trends in numeracy, literacy, retention, transition and multi-level performance.
The conduct of the Annual School Census is digital, which means information is submitted on a close to real-time basis for cleansing and analysis.
This technique of digitising the ASC, which commenced in 2018 in the Ministry, has transitioned the obsolete subculture of file and file management structures. Currently, school-stage statistics are in a precise layout for all schools at district and countrywide stages.
World Economic Forum’s Platform for Shaping the Future of Global Public Goods – released its 2030Vision report which covers critical conversations that need to manifest in governments to enable the use of technological advancements to support development towards achieving the Global Goals.
The report cited Sierra Leone’s hard-won gains in using science, technology and innovation to combat the COVID-19 pandemic with its National COVID-19 Response Centre (NaCOVERC). The Government of Sierra Leone developed its countrywide COVID‐19 Emergency Response which incorporated an ICT Response Pillar, consisting of public, private and global partners.
The pillar harnesses information technology and data to expand COVID‐19 interventions that inform and guide policy‐makers, public health experts and citizens on infection prevention and control, when it is necessary to take certain measures such as lockdowns and curfews to mitigate the spread of the virus which is why Sierra Leone records low cases and deaths compared to other countries.
