Here are 4 clever ways to cut costs.
Hard Times call for Hard measures.In a recession, it is often said that a good administrator should be able to earn his/her salary in savings. If you aren't cutting costs as much as you'd like to, read on. You may think you've done everything possible to
reduce costs without compromising on quality but you probably haven't tried these 4 extra cost-cutting tricks:
1. Go paperless: A school going paperless? But going paperless doesn't mean doing away with paper altogether just like going cashless doesn't mean an end to physical currency.
2. Smarter Inventory: Management of inventories and supplies like classroom materials and uniforms is one obvious but overlooked the way that massive leakage of funds and supplies can be checked. A school management software can also help you do that.

The 7 Different Learning Styles: Which Works for you?
For students, learning is different for each individual as we all have unique learning styles. It is important to understand which learning style(s) works for them in order to boost their ability to comprehend.What are learning styles anyway?As the title implies, it is simply put as the style with which a person learns. Styles here means the method through which something is comprehended. For instance, when learning to sew a dress, a student may very easily get through the process by listening to instructions and another would prefer pictorials, showing step-by-step images.What other learning styles are there?There are 7 different learning styles. If you can identify which group(s) you belong to, then you can leverage that to learn and assimilate efficiently.
Visual: Visual learners grasp concepts best with the use of images, diagrams, illustrations, maps, and videos. Representing information in this form allows students make use of their visual memory.
Oral: if you find yourself focusing and understanding more when listening to songs and podcasts, or when someone is speaking to you loud, rather than reading the text, then you may be in the oral or auditory learning group.

Flexisaf was present all through!, Distinction.ng, our e-testing CBT platform for JAMB, NECO and WAEC practice was introduced to secondary school students present as well as our other products like SRMS, SAFPAY and skools.ng.
"The SAF programme is unique software that I love because it makes my work a whole lot easier. As side from the leverage it give the school as an upgraded school, its brings out pupils strength and weakness through their report grading system. By the way it is programmed, it calculates automatically in terms of class average and positions which makes it easier and flexible. They’ve made everything so flexible that no matter how fast our grading and assessment formats change, it can easily be reconfigured to tally with the current format. After using this software, I and my staff can attest to its efficiency, cost effectiveness, accuracy, convenience and data security."
