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 undergraduate student leaders and Senior High School Prefects.  The Course deals with the theoretical and practical challenges student leaders face in school and how they can handle them.

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

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