National Professional Qualification Senior Leaders (NPQSL)
This is for the 2019/20 Cohort. Course dates and venues are subject to change.
Delivered by the UCL Institute of Learning, this course is for those aspiring to become a senior leader with cross-school responsibilities e.g. an experienced middle leader, a deputy head teacher, an assistant head teacher, or other senior staff e.g. a Director of a Teaching School Alliance (TSA).
The curriculum framework is built around six content areas and seven leadership behaviours, all of which are common to each level of NPQ, enabling leaders to develop the depth and breadth of knowledge and experience progressively through the levels:
The six content areas set out what a leader should know or be able to do:
- Managing Resources and Risks
- Teaching and Curriculum Excellence
- Strategy and Improvement
- Leading with Impact
- Working in Partnership
- Increasing Capability
The seven leadership behaviours focus on how the best leaders operate:
- Personal Drive
In addition to the 5 face-to-face (F2F) sessions, the NPQSL programme follows a blended learning format. This consists of workplace learning and practice activities, peer and facilitated learning, reading, structured reflection, online learning and a 360 diagnostic assessment.
Staff who wish to submit an application to enrol on this course should first discuss this with their Headteacher.
