Applications are now open for the next cohort of NPQEL (National Professional Qualification for Executive Leadership).

More information can be found HERE.

The National Professional Qualification for Executive Leadership (NPQEL) is your opportunity to achieve a nationally recognised, executive leadership qualification, working with colleagues and leading educationalists from across the country, and utilising local expertise and knowledge which fits your regional context.

Specifically designed for those currently leading more than one school or college, or those interested in taking on such a role, either as an executive headteacher or as chief executive of a trust or federation in any phase of education, our executive leadership programme offers you an exceptional opportunity to prepare for the challenges of running a group of schools/colleges, enhance your leadership skills, hone your practice and achieve formal recognition.

The programme covers all of the curriculum content specified for NPQEL through the online learning materials, webinars and tutorial sessions. We use a mixture of experienced executive leaders and experts on specific topics to deliver the webinars that have currently replaced the National Training Days and the online tutorials that we are using instead of Regional tutorial sessions.

There are six areas of curriculum content:

  • Strategy and Improvement
  • Teaching and Curriculum Excellence
  • Leading with Impact
  • Working in partnership
  • Managing Resources and Risks
  • Increasing Capability
