Content

The NPQH programme is delivered over an 18 month period with 4 modules.  At the end of the taught elements you will undertake a summative assessment.

Below is a breakdown of how the programme is delivered and the time commitment.

Assessment

Formative assessment takes place throughout the programme, helping you understand the progress you are making, and facilitators to adapt your learning experiences.

Summative assessment takes the form of a 1500-word response to a case study, completed in a single 8-day window at the end of your programme. The assessment will give you the opportunity to demonstrate how you would deploy the knowledge, skills and understanding gained through the NPQ to lead and implement a specific aspect of change.

If you join a February 2022 start cohort, the taught elements of your course will be complete by August 2023. Your assessment will start on 1 September 2023, be submitted on 8 September 2023, and the marking and moderation will be complete by December 2023.
