The NPQ Alliance - The National Professional Qualification for Senior Leadership (NPQSL) - North

  • Outwood Academy Acklam 68 Hall Drive Middlesbrough, England, TS5 7EX United Kingdom (map)

We are proud to announce that we are part of the NPQ Alliance, led by Ambition Institute who are licensed by the Department for Education to deliver the National Professional Qualifications. 

The programme 

The main focus of this programme is the participant’s own leadership development, including how to make best use of tasks and tools to make the transition to senior leadership. Participants will be assessed through a written assignment to ensure that they have reached the qualification requirements. 

The programme will consist of a series of training sessions, along with pre- and post-reading and an in-school impact project. 

The training sessions will include the following five core areas: 

  •  Self-development and stepping up into senior leadership 

  •  Strategic leadership using data 

  •  Leadership of whole-school CPD 

  •  Teaching and learning improvements 

  •  Horizon scanning and looking to the future 

To make sure they get the most out of the programme participants will need to carry out pre-and post-workshop reading outside of the sessions.
