   National Professional Qualification in Leading Teaching Development (NPQLTD)

February 2024:  Register your interest for our specialist and leadership NPQ cohorts commencing February 2024

We are pleased to announce that we are partnering with Ambition Institute to deliver the new NPQ for Leading Teacher Development. In 12 months, participants will gain the knowledge to become teacher educators and successfully support fellow teachers to expand their skills.

Those doing the training will learn: 

  • How to help teachers improve through evidence-based professional development focused on improving classroom teaching. 
  • To contribute to a programme of professional development for mentors, trainees and early career teachers.
  • To diagnose what teachers know and can do, starting professional development from that point and adapting the approach based on their developing expertise.

How you will learn:

  • The content is delivered through blended learning over a period of 12 months. This includes a mix of real-time, interactive online sessions and self-guided modules you complete in your own time. You will be encouraged to put what you learn into practice and track your progress as you go.

  • Create confident leaders.
