National Professional Qualifications

National Professional Qualifications (NPQs) are trusted, transferable qualifications for educational professionals. Accredited by the DfE, NPQs are designed to refresh existing skills and provide high quality professional development for teachers and leaders. 

Partnering with our lead provider, Ambition Institute, we offer the five specialist and five leadership NPQ programmes. The duration of the programmes varies between 12-18 months dependent upon the NPQ selected.
