National Professional Qualification for Middle Leadership (NPQML)

The NPQML is a revised and updated programme that will help you to develop the skills, knowledge and confidence that you need to lead a high-performing team in a school and to improve classroom practice. The course is for those who are, or are aspiring to become, a middle leader with responsibility for leading a team, for example:

• Key stage leader
• Curriculum area leader
• Pastoral services leader
• Subject leader
• Special educational needs co-ordinator (SENCO)
• Head of department

This includes those who are, or are aspiring to be, a middle leader with cross-school responsibilities, for example a Specialist Leader of Education (SLE).

NPQML is a qualification that provides a nationally recognised middle leadership qualification.

The upcoming programme will start in September 2018 and will run over 6 sessions to the Autumn Term 2019 and will finish with a final assessment.

“Informative and technique driven”, “Great to have time to reflect and discuss with other middle leaders”, “I have learnt a lot about myself and target areas I need to work on”, “The leader was very welcoming and accommodating of our thoughts and questions. She created a sense of calm and self-belief” “Informative, useful, varied with good pace”, “Excellent course, thank you”.
