The National Examinations Board in Supervisory Studies (NEBSS) was established in 1964 on the initiative of the Department of Education and Science, and was supported by all the major organisations concerned with supervisory education and training. It is an independent, autonomous body administered by the City and Guilds of London Institute. It is not a corporate body, is non‐profit making, has few assets, no endowments, and does little research. The Board has the task of stimulating and co‐ordinating the provision of suitable courses for supervision at all levels over the whole range of industry, trade, and commerce and, by the provision and control of nationally‐accepted examination standards, establishing a general recognition of the cardinal need for supervisors to be properly qualified to enable them to discharge their responsibilities with maximum effectiveness. To achieve its objectives, the Board has established a flexible structure which assists the development of local initiative by encouraging technical colleges and industrial or commercial organisations to co‐operate in devising suitable courses and examinations to meet specific needs whilst, at the same time, establishing and maintaining national standards in supervisory studies.
