National Professional Qualification for Senior Leadership (NPQSL)

NPQSL provides recognition of leadership development and professional achievement for senior leaders. Candidates have access to high-quality learning materials and accounts of practice from outstanding leaders. Senior leaders reflect on their own leadership through discussion and debate with peers before putting theory into practice. The qualification has been designed to stimulate and challenge thinking, build knowledge, skills and expertise and promote change and improvement in leadership behaviours, capability and capacity.

NPQSL is assessed and accredited by the National College for Teaching and Leadership. The qualification has a flexible, modular structure that combines core modules with the freedom to specialise and to develop candidate’s own professional areas of interest through the choice of elective modules.

Eligibility

NPQSL is suitable for senior leaders with cross-school responsibilities, experienced middle leaders, deputy heads, SENCOs or advanced skills teachers. If you would like to discuss eligibility, please contact us.
