National Professional Qualification for Senior Leadership


NPQSL is for those individuals who not only have responsibility for leading a team, but are also involved in leading a range of issues that affect the whole school or organisation. This includes those who are, or are aspiring to be, a senior leader with cross-school responsibilities, e.g. a Director of a Teaching School Alliance (TSA).


The qualification will support you in becoming a highly effective senior leader with the skills, confidence and knowledge to contribute to the strategic development of your school or organisation as part of the senior leadership team.

We will tailor the programme to meet your particular priorities through your choice of  in-school project.

It is expected participants will complete the programme within 12 months.
