NPQSL

National Professional Qualification for Senior Leadership

Senior leaders play a critical part in developing and implementing all strategic and operational decisions at cross school and whole school level. As a key role model in the school, senior leaders must demonstrate collective responsibility, be at the operational sharp edge of change and effectively manage staff.

The National Professional Qualification for Senior Leadership (NPQSL) is the leading qualification for current or aspiring senior leaders. The programme tackles the challenges of leading across a school. On completion of our NPQSL, you will be equipped with the skills, knowledge and confidence to drive your school forward as part of a Senior Leadership Team.

We 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 NPQSL follows a modular curriculum based on Masterís level criteria and focuses on developing the knowledge, skills and attributes of a successful senior leader. To achieve the NPQSL qualification you’ll need to successfully complete two essential modules and two elective modules 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 NPQSL final assessment. The final assessment process will comprise two assessed tasks based on school improvement work across your school and an assignment based on the essential module Closing the gap. There will be five full day face to face sessions with the addition of online modules to complete.
