National Professional Qualification in Senior Leadership (NPQSL) programme
This course currently attracts a DfE scholarship grant until 20th September 2019 because we are a multi-academy trust.
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 academy 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 Teacher 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 academy or organisation as part of the senior leadership team. The support of a 'coach' from your academy, usually your line manager or Executive Principal/Headteacher, is essential to enable you to make the most of the programme. You will tailor the programme to meet your particular priorities through your choice of an in-academy project and a 360 20q diagnostic of your leadership skills which will help you identify the areas you want to develop.
Local providers can be found at, and applications can be made via LLSE, until 30th August 2019 :
