LEADERSHIP SKILLS ENHANCEMENT COURSE
…for School Prefects
School Prefects are Leaders and they need training. This training is what FLED has provided to schools around the country since 1998.
What is LESEC?
Leadership Skills Enhancement Course (LESEC) is a life skills development Course that builds the leadership competence of college 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 with the title College Prefects are Leaders. The Manual has been duly assessed by the Nigerian Educational Research and Development Council (NERDC) and approved by the Federal Ministry of Education to be used for the training of school prefects in Nigeria.
If your School Prefects are not trained in leadership with approved leadership curriculum, you are not giving them the right mental preparation to take on leadership challenges, even as students.
If you appoint Prefects and do not spend some money to train them, you don’t really believe in them. You don’t need to call them leaders; just call them something else, but not leaders!
We are available to conduct the training for prefects anywhere around the Country. If you want them to attend the training online, we are ready. If you want us to come to your school to conduct the training, we are here for you.
For more than 25 years, we have been training youths in leadership. We have the experience and have built a track record. Our graduates are now excelling in different fields because of what they learned from FLED.
Please review the course content and contact us as soon as you can.
