National Professional Qualifications (NPQs) for UK Schools
Meet your leadership challenges with National Professional Qualifications
We have partnered with Best Practice Network and Outstanding Leaders Network to offer NPQ qualifications designed by serving school leaders and subject matter experts to form a coherent learning pathway. The combination of online courses, face-to-face events and enrichment practice activity create a truly blended learning experience.
The qualifications are structured in such a way as to give candidates the option of moving on to the next qualification after completing their first, or simply completing one qualification if preferred.
