National Professional Qualification for Senior Leadership (NPQSL)

The National Professional Qualification in 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 head teacher, an assistant head teacher, or other senior staff. Assessment is via a school-based project on which participants and HTs can decide.

This includes those who are, or are aspiring to be, a senior leader with cross-school responsibilities e.g. a Director of a Teaching School Alliance. In addition to experiencing training created by the renowned Institute of Education, you will also gain 40 credits towards a Masters degree such as such as an MA in Education, Transformational Leadership or Early Childhood Education.

Save £200 by booking this course at St Mary's Teaching School, in conjunction with the Institute of Education/Leadership CoLab, rather than at the IoE itself.


The closing date for the next intake of participants is Monday 24th September.

Applications should be made directly to the Institute of Education (see application link below) - please select St Mary's Teaching School Alliance as your cluster choice.
