Prefects training programme

Your school prefects must have the ability to communicate effectively with a wide range of people, including students, teachers and parents. Their role involves effective problem solving, delegation, time management and negotiation as well as acting as a mediator and support network for fellow pupils. More and more schools are beginning to understand the value of a high quality prefect training programme that enables the prefects to develop the skills that are necessary for effective performance.
