Programme Details

There are six NPQML study modules which set out leadership aptitudes. Modules focus on improving leadership practice and supporting the development of the critical leadership behaviors of commitment, collaboration, personal drive, resilience, awareness, integrity and respect – behaviors which exemplify how outstanding leaders should operate.

The six study modules to be completed are:

  • Strategy and improvement
  • Teaching and curriculum excellence
  •  Leading with impact
  • working in partnership
  • Managing resources and risk
  • Increasing capacity

Our programme offers 6 face-to-face leadership learning sessions all delivered 1-5pm.

Programme Structure – Within these sessions, we build in dedicated time to support the preparation for the final assessment. The face-to-face events are also supplemented by workplace learning, reading, reflections and online learning.

Assessment – In order to gain the qualification, the NPQML final assessment must be completed, the task is designed to allow individuals the opportunity to demonstrate their ability to be an effective middle leader.

Each individual will need to lead an improvement project in their team lasting at least two terms, and which is aimed at improving pupil progress and attainment as well as the capacity of their team.

Location – The face to face sessions will take place at Tor View School as well as at our local alliance schools.

Price – £950 per person


QA report Feb 2019

“Louise and Kelly worked very effectively together, checking in with each other to ensure the group were ready to progress to the next stage of the session and between them ensuring they joined discussions with all table groups. They are both approachable and warm, and demonstrated a real rapport with the participants, as well as an understanding of the local context.”
