   National Professional Qualification in Leading Teaching (NPQLT)

We are pleased to announce that we are partnering with Ambition Institute to deliver the new NPQ for Leading Teaching. In 12 months, participants will discover what outstanding teaching looks like and use this knowledge to become high-performing leaders of teaching.

Those doing the training will learn: 

  • How to become excellent leaders of teaching.
  • How to unpack and apply learning in teaching, curriculum and assessment.
  • At a time and pace that suits their existing timetable.
