NPQ Leading Teaching

Aimed at colleagues with at least 3 years teaching experience, the NPQLT gives participants all the essential knowledge, skills and concepts that underpin successful leadership of teaching.


The course is usually completed within 12 months with a summative assessment at its conclusion.  This is a blended delivery model comprising 3 face to face events, online study, webinars and coaching.  Eligibility is subject to evidencing support from your Headteacher to release you to undertake the course and related work. ​


The programme: ​

  • contributes to a culture of high expectations across the school
  • supports colleagues to plan effective lessons and to avoid common assessment pitfalls
  • encourages colleagues to use high quality, reliable assessment without creating unnecessary workload
  • provides access and enables colleagues to draw upon best available evidence and research.
