Through the course, you will be placed in a group of delegates from international schools. You will be able to interact with peers in international school settings from all over the world, further expanding your knowledge and understanding.
Formative assessment takes place throughout the programme, helping you understand the progress you are making. Facilitators will engage with you throughout the ‘live online’ sessions to ensure that learning experiences build on prior learning and the international school contexts of the group.
Summative assessment takes the form of a 1500-word response to a case study, completed in a single 8-day window at the end of your programme. The assessment will give you the opportunity to demonstrate how you would deploy the knowledge, skills and understanding gained through the NPQ to lead and implement a specific aspect of change.
Further information about assessment can be found here.
