Leadership Programme

National Professional Qualification for Middle Leadership

The National Professional Qualification for Middle Leadership (NPQML) is a qualification aimed at those in their first years of middle leadership and those hoping to move into a middle leadership position. The programme tackles issues surrounding leading a team within an organisation.  On completion of our NPQML you will be equipped with the skills, knowledge and confidence to drive your team forward.
We will offer a unique programme with excellence, critical reflection and high quality school-based practice at its heart.  Our tailored programme will ensure your learning is relevant to your needs and offer you the opportunity to work with outstanding leaders.

 

What’s involved?

The new NPQML follows a modular curriculum based on Masters level criteria and focuses on developing the knowledge, skills and attributes of a successful senior leader. To achieve the NPQML qualification you'll need to successfully complete two essential modules and one elective module involving extended case studies and related in-school assignments with a stronger focus on leading teaching, behaviour and performance management.  You will also need to complete the NPQML final assessment.  The final assessment process will comprise one assessed task based on school improvement at team level in your school.


COST: £950 per applicant

Participants from the Independent Schools sector (not including special schools) or school outside England will need to pay an additional £225 external Final Assessment fee.
