Empowering teachers and leaders to make change happen

National Professional Qualifications

Great leaders create the right conditions for improvement in educational settings. Our NPQs  empower leaders and aspiring leaders to create conditions for change and embed evidence-informed teaching and learning at their levels of control, whether that be the classroom, department, school, early years setting or trust.

For teachers taking their first steps into specialist leadership roles, our specialist NPQs support practitioners towards mastery of relevant expertise, giving them the knowledge and tools to develop others and extend their influence beyond their own classrooms. 

Our leadership NPQs guide experienced and aspiring leaders through learning that examines the three layers of influence: culture in their school, trust or early years setting; the organisational conditions which bring this culture to life; and how these conditions can promote excellent teaching in every classroom, or excellent learning and care in every early years learning environment.
