National Professional Qualifications
*New application deadline: 17th October 2021*
The new, reformed suite of NPQs will be available for teachers and school leaders from Autumn 2021. These include:
- NPQ Executive Leadership
- NPQ Headship
- NPQ Senior Leadership
- NPQ Leading Teacher Development
- NPQ Leading Teaching
- NPQ Leading Behaviour and Culture
These qualifications have been designed to support teachers and leaders in developing skills in aspects of school leadership and specialist areas of teaching practice. They have been developed through consultation with the education sector and EEF.
The new NPQs support the Department for Education’s Recruitment and Retention Strategy (2019) and the ‘Golden Thread’. They build on evidence already established in the Initial Teacher Training COre Content Framework and the Early Career Framework (ECF), and reflect both the Teachers’ Standards and The Headteachers’ Standards.
