The way the programmes are delivered has changed since the introduction of Teaching School hubs. The School-Led Network was created from a motivation to enable all schools, MATs and Teaching School Hubs to have the choice of a genuinely school-led NPQ provider. It is a partnership formed by the Harris Leadership College, NETSP, Newcastle University, Outwood Institute of Education and Star Institute.
The NPQML no longer exists but has been replaced by other NPQ’s. The information below explains the courses available. Please follow this link which has further information including a booking form to book your place. https://www.school-led.org.uk/
