The National Professional Qualification for Senior Leadership (NPQSL) is for those who are, or are aspiring to become, a senior leader with cross-school responsibilities such as an experienced middle leader, a deputy headteacher, an assistant headteacher, or other senior staff.

NPQSL provides recognition of leadership development and professional achievement for senior leaders. Candidates have access to high-quality learning materials and accounts of practice from outstanding leaders. Senior leaders reflect on their own leadership through discussion and debate with peers and put theory into practice. NPQSL has a flexible combination of blended learning and online seminars, leadership learning groups, dedicated personal tutor and peer support. Candidates will complete three modules covering three learning areas:

  • Strategy and Improvement
  • Teaching and Curriculum Excellence
  • Managing Resources and Risks
