…for Secondary School Prefects 


Since 1998, FLED has trained more than 5000 undergraduate student leaders and college prefects through this course. We have the experience and have built a track record.

What is LESEC?

Leadership Skills Enhancement Course (LESEC) is a life skills development Course that builds the leadership competence of Secondary School Prefects.  The Course deals with the theoretical and practical challenges prefects face in school and how they can handle them.

Since 1998, prefects of schools in different parts of the country have been trained through LESEC. A Training Manual of LESEC has been published, duly assessed by the Nigerian Educational Research and Development Council (NERDC), and approved by the Federal Ministry of Education, for use in the training of prefects in Nigeria.

If your School Prefects are not trained with approved leadership training curriculum, you have not given them the right mental preparation to take on leadership challenges.


To enable participants:

  • Identify what leadership is and what it is not.
  • Develop practical leadership skills including team skills and goal setting.
  • Recognize values that sustain leadership including Fairness, Trustworthiness, Respect, & Accountability.
  • Develop the ability to communicate assertively, make decisions, and take responsibility.
  • Acquire basic skills in conflict resolution for Peer Mediation
  • Recognize and apply the principle of due process in relating to school authority.
  • Reconcile academics with leadership responsibilities.


When prefects attend this course, the following outcomes are noted:

  • Enhanced knowledge of the concept of leadership
  • Increased ability to work together as a team in setting and implementing goals.
  • Practical demonstration of leadership values such as fairness, Trustworthiness, Respect,  & Accountability
  • Increased readiness to mediate among students in resolving minor conflicts in the school.
  • Increased awareness on how to relate with school authority through due process.
  • Increased ability to create vision and take responsibility for leadership 
  • Reduced tendency to promote cultism and other social vices in school. 

LESEC is a foundational course that prepares students leaders for the challenges of leadership both in school today and in the larger society.
