We have teamed up with the Ambition Institute to deliver NPQs across the South West.
The Department for Education has announced updated funding eligibility criteria for the reformed suite of National Professional Qualifications (NPQs) and published new frameworks for qualifications in Leading Literacy (NPQLL) and Early Years Leadership (NPQEYL).
In Autumn 2021 the Department of Education introduced a new and updated suite of NPQs to offer the best possible support to teachers and leaders to help them become more effective teachers and leaders inside and outside the classroom.
There are 4 specialist NPQs which take 12 months to complete:
- National Professional Qualification for Leading Literacy (NPQLL) (new for November 2022) Become an expert in literacy and leadership and enable young people to benefit from the curriculum to improve their chances of success
- NPQ for Leading Teacher Development (NPQLTD) Supporting the training and development of others, including early career teachers.
- NPQ for Leading Behaviour and Culture (NPQLBC) Developing teachers who have responsibilities for leading behaviour and culture.
- NPQ for Leading Teaching (NPQLT) Developing teachers who are subject leads or responsible for improving teaching practice in a subject or phase.
There are 2 leadership NPQs which take 18 months to complete:
All these courses are fully funded through the DfE for most schools.
The frameworks have been developed in consultation with an expert advisory group with specialists from across the education system and clearly sets out the content that participants should know and be able to do after completing an NPQ. Providers of NPQs will use these frameworks to design their courses. For further information about the content/curriculum please read through the relevant NPQ frameworks.
