International NPQs


The Alliance of Leading Learning are experienced in delivering NPQs to leaders in many international areas.  The legacy NPQs have had participants from Beijing, Qatar, China, Macau and Malaysia successfully complete their NPQs.    The provision of these programmes to international clients gives teachers a great opportunity to ensure that they are keeping up to date with best practice in the UK as well as developing their leadership skills for use in their current setting.





The newly reformed NPQs include four Specialist programmes and four Leadership programmes.  The programme of learning is blended between webinars and self-guided learning.  This works well with our international participants and gives you the scope to flexibly access the full programme online.

Following a needs analysis with our international clientele, we have decided to deliver the following programmes:

NPQLT (Leading Teaching)
NPQSL (Senior Leaders)
NPQH (Headship)

Details of the content, delivery and summative assessment are on the links above.

We feel that the content of these three programmes is relevant and applicable for participants working overseas.

Programmes will start officially in February 2023 with a lead into the programme with introductory webinars, guidance on using the portal and access to pre-reading in the Autumn Term.  We appreciate this may seem like a long wait, but we hope to support a cohort of like-minded professionals working overseas with a fantastic learning experience and opportunities to collaborate.



The following table gives a breakdown of the programmes and the costs.



Testimonials from Past Participants:

“Meaningful CPD in any context is crucial towards career progression. I felt this was more pertinent being based internationally, and particularly moving into senior leadership positions within education. This is why the blended online approach delivered by the Alliance for Leading Learning (ALL) was a perfect fit for me. It enabled me to engage with applicable leadership capabilities, strategies, and pedagogy, whilst maintaining UK standards; and ingrain my school based change management projects towards the NPQH qualification. Through a carefully structured delivery, the holistic approach ALL promoted — along with the personalised virtual tutorials and easy to navigate platform — there was a clear benefit for my professional growth that has broadened my ability to take on a headship in the future. If you are keen to add value to your own educational leadership experiences, the ALL provides an excellent opportunity and expertise to guide your journey to the next steps through their tailored NPQ programmes. ”  Mr Shilen Tanna (NPQH) Epsom College in Malaysia

“My experience of undertaking the NPQH with the Alliance of Leading Learning was overwhelmingly positive. The staff and advisors were both supportive and knowledgable; as a team they were also flexible in terms of how I was able to conduct my assignments, in a COVID-19 affected world. The course itself, was challenging and helped me to reflect on how best to lead a school, particularly in times of challenge. I would highly recommend aspiring Heads in the U.K. and abroad, to undertake this course.” Adam Price (NPQH) Macau Anglican College
