Who is this for?
NPQEL is suitable for colleagues aspiring to, or already in, leadership roles across more than one school. This includes headteachers, executive headteachers, chief operating officers and directors of school improvement.
NPQEL provides the opportunity to recognise the achievements of leaders across a group of schools. Experienced and talented leaders will form Peer Leadership Challenge Groups, undertaking a joint improvement project, before embarking on a course of study covering strategic planning, organisation change and business development. Candidates have access to high-quality learning materials and accounts of practice from outstanding leaders, including executive leadership coaching. We will provide guest speakers from major UK businesses and peer mentors from different sectors to offer perspectives and approaches from outside the education system.
The qualification has a flexible combination of blended learning and support opportunities that includes face-to-face sessions, online learning, leadership learning groups, dedicated personal tutor and peer support. Candidates will complete three courses covering three learning areas: Strategy and Improvement, Teaching and Curriculum Excellence, and Managing Resources and Risks, each facilitated within a 4-week period. All focus on improving the effectiveness of leadership practice and developing behaviours around commitment, collaboration, personal drive, resilience, awareness, integrity and respect.
