Whether you’re thinking of taking the next step in your career or simply looking to develop your leadership skills in your current role, our online and inclusive National Professional Qualifications (NPQ) offer you a flexible route to achieve these high-quality qualifications approved by the Department for Education (DfE).
Through our NPQs, you will further develop your leadership skills, including those needed to effectively implement new improvement plans and strategies into your school, something that the Education Endowment Foundation believes is currently lacking in many schools – see their article ‘Putting Evidence to Work – A School’s Guide to Implementation‘ for more details.
Fully-funded NPQs starting in September
The DfE has confirmed funding is in place for our September cohort so we would advise for you to plan ahead and book now to secure your fully-funded place for September. Funded places are available for leaders and aspiring leaders in:
- Maintained schools, academies, free schools and PRUs in category 5 and 6 areas
- All schools in a MAT which includes at least one category 5 or 6 school
- All schools in a Diocese which includes at least one category 5 or 6 school
Please note: Places within a school, cluster, MAT or Diocese are not limited – so if you have colleagues who you think may also be interested, please don’t hesitate in forwarding this information to them.
We offer NPQs at three school leadership levels – middle leaders (NPQML), senior leaders (NPQSL) and headship (NPQH) – take a look at our dedicated pages online for more information on programme content, funding rules and what you can expect from our leading-edge, inclusive leadership programmes.
