Bring your prefect system into the 21st century.

Our 1 day prefect training workshop prepares students to become effective leaders.  An inter-active workshop training style mirrors the delivery used within industry and commerce.  Students not only focus upon the skills required to take up leadership roles within school or college but are also able to gain an insight and understanding of how these skills are transferable to other situations in their future career plans.  

Training, coaching and developing the students over the day enables the students to see how they can fit into the wider picture and make a real contribution to the school or college.  Complimenting existing practice within schools students are able to take on a role within school developing areas, such as mentoring, reading support, school council, sports development, homework clubs, raising attainment support and other extra curricular areas.  Students may wish to support specific projects already set up or establish new ones.

‘Thank you for an outstanding day with our pupils.  It was everything I had hoped for, and ten days on I can see clear gains in confidence and motivation on the part of our prefects.  They were extremely positive about the day, and there is now an excellent sense of purpose in this year group’
