…A value-based leadership training for Student Leaders
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?
A key strategy to groom good quality leadership is to mainstream leadership development into all our human development processes. This systemic approach enables us harvest trained and informed leaders in the future.
Student leaders in secondary school and tertiary institutions are emerging leaders. They perform critical functions in the school system. They represent an important foundation of organized young leadership group in our educational system. But these young leaders need to be prepared, not only to discharge their responsibilities effectively, but to prepare them for future leadership challenges.
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 from 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 in Nigeria.
