The National Professional Qualification for Headship (NPQH) is the nationally accepted route into headship and the content of this qualification has been developed in partnership with some of the best school leaders in the country.
NPQH is for those who are, or are aspiring to become, a headteacher or head of school with responsibility for leading a school. This includes those who are, or are aspiring to be, a headteacher or head of school with cross-school responsibilities such as a National Leader of Education (NLE).
The programme will develop talented leaders from all backgrounds who can deliver educational excellence in a self-improving system, and high quality outcomes for pupils and students. The support of a ‘sponsor’ from your school, usually your line manager or headteacher, is essential to enable you to make the most of the programme.
It is expected that participants will complete the programme within 12-18 months.
This year we have over 80 participants on our NPQH programme. We plan for two cohorts each year but due to popular demand added an additional cohort for 2018 – 2019. NPQH places are taken very quickly and we generate waiting lists. For 2019 – 2020 we already have limited remaining places and cannot guarantee an additional third cohort. We advise you register and complete the application form as a real priority if you want to secure a place on the programme.
PLEASE NOTE: There is currently no guarantee from the DfE that the NPQs will be continued under licence post-2020 or that fully funded scholarships will be available in the future.
