Applications for the National Professional Qualification in Leading Teacher Development (NPQLTD) commencing February 2023 are now open.

Please see the 'How to register for your NPQ' guide below to secure your NPQ place now!

Deadline - Thursday 12 January 2023

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. 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.

Benefits to your school:

  • Create confident leaders.
  • Attract and retain staff.
  • Giving teachers multiple career pathways and options at every stage of their careers. 


  • Free to all state schools and state funded organisations that offer 16-19 places in England.

  • See the 'find out more - NPQLTD' flyer below. 

To apply:
