Applying to become a school prefect

So you need help applying to become a school prefect? See below...

We offer our Leadership training for prefects as a one-day course, either delivered in person or virtually by our leadership training specialist; OR you can buy the course and deliver it yourself 

If you'd like our leadership specialist to deliver the course at your venue of choice we embed your school's ethos and core values at the heart of the session. We have worked with many schools, Archbishop Blanch CE High School (Liverpool), The Gatwick School (West Sussex), Harrow Way Community School (Andover), Kingsdale Foundation School (Dulwich), St maty's High School (Chesterfield), Stocksbridge High School (Sheffield), to name just a few. It's a very active course to keep the learners engaged and interested for the whole day (usually 9am - 3pm). Contact us and speak with one of the team or read on...

The information we cover and the leadership skills, tips and techniques we discuss are very relevant for a school environment and are transferrable skills into a future workplace - as we say to all our leaners no matter what the environment is "Leadership is a decision you make, not a seat you sit it"

Leadership Training for Prefects

There are two issues that we've come up against when speaking to schools who are looking to book this session. You see they have spoken to other training providers and have seen the course that they have to deliver. The first is that half the courses are too corporate and the other half are too condescending. When we wrote this course we spoke to, firstly, our own kids (some were prefects) and, secondly, to the teaching and support staff in the schools we work with when delivering coaching skills or supporting with their D of E training. 

Some clients opt for the whole leadership training for prefects course (for us to deliver or to buy for a teacher to deliver) or the workbook for the teacher to work through with the group, and this can be covered in a day or over a period of time - one section per week (for example), and it comes with some notes for the tutor too. 

The Breakdown of the Course

The cost to buy the course and deliver it yourself is just £249, for this you get:

  • Extensive tutor notes
  • Power point slides for the visual learners
  • The interactive activities used during the session
  • The leadership training for prefects workbook
  • Access to our leadership specialist if you have questions

The leadership skills for prefects training course

In our experience training works better if it is continuous, i.e. a program over the year. We recommend the following as a leadership skills development program for school prefects. It not only helps in their prefect duties, it also helps with the future university, college and/or job applications. We suggest the following:

Term 1 - Leadership Skills for Prefects

Term 2 - DISC and Communication Skills

Term 3 - Emotional Intelligence for Prefects

Again you can either hire one of our training specialists or buy the course for you to deliver. They are the same price as above and come with all the relevant bits for you to deliver a very successful and effective session.

As well as lots of smaller businesses and organisations, below are examples of some larger organisations who have received training from our director of learning at Ultimate Leadership Training:
