Leadership Development

“The second [NPQML] cohort have now successfully completed their course again very successfully. I have to say that we saw leadership qualities during the presentations that we have not previously witnessed. This has had a positive impact on our school and we have now asked our Curriculum Teams to carry out an Action Research Project as part of their development of their subject.” Headteacher

There are a number of professional qualifications available for aspiring and new middle leaders, senior leaders, and Headteachers. The National College for Teaching and Leadership works with schools and their partners to develop leadership training programmes, including:

  • National Professional Qualification for Headship (NPQH)
  • National Professional Qualification for Senior Leadership (NPQSL)
  • National Professional Qualification for Middle Leadership (NPQML)

Our Teaching School Alliances have partnerships with a number of licensees who deliver these programmes.
