NPQSL gives candidates all of the essential knowledge, skills and concepts that underpin successful senior leadership. Participants will cover ‘learn that’ and ‘learn how to’ statements in ten areas:

  • 1 – School Culture
  • 2 – Teaching
  • 3 – Curriculum and Assessment
  • 4 – Behaviour
  • 5 – Additional and Special Educational Needs and Disabilities
  • 6 – Professional Development
  • 7 – Organisational Management
  • 8 – Implementation
  • 9 – Working in Partnership
  • 10 – Governance and Accountability

What are the benefits?

The fully blended learning approach combined with performance coaching and enrichment activities make this an exciting and valuable opportunity for current and aspiring senior leaders.
