Leacov was founded by Mr Simon Ng—an individual who strongly believed all his life that only continuous education and training could help one improve and move up in life.

Mr Ng came from a poor family, and began his working life at the age of 12 as an odd job labourer. Shaped by his real-life experiences and insights over the years, Mr Ng hoped to be the bridge between a person’s potential and aspirations, lending a helping hand to them and becoming a part of their learning journey towards a better career and wage.

As Mr Ng was involved in security work for almost all of his career, he saw the industry’s potential to provide good, stable employment opportunities to Singaporeans. With the network and trust he had built up among members of the industry, it was a natural choice for him to set up a professional security training school, to help solve the challenges of the security industry in Singapore and make it an even more attractive and competitive career option.

Incorporated in 2011, Leacov began serving the private security industry with its innovative and holistic learning solutions, establishing itself as a leader in the security training industry and garnering many awards, most recently reaching 11th place (the highest position ever attained by the security industry) in the prestigious national Enterprise 50 Awards 2019.

Today, Leacov has grown into a group of companies offering a full spectrum of security and training support services, technology and solutions with an international scope, bringing our expertise and innovation beyond Singapore’s shores. We look forward to an ever-brighter future, carrying the torch of Singapore high.
