Flexible Blended Learning Qualifications

The NPQs are prestigious, government-backed qualifications that develop you and your staff, completely reformed in 2021. The NPQ suite compromises:

  • Four specialist qualifications in leading teaching, behaviour, teacher development and literacy
  • Three leadership qualifications for senior leaders, headteachers and executive leaders

Four Specialist NPQs

Instead of the old, generic NPQ in Middle Leadership, the Specialist NPQ suite offers knowledge pathways and more practical content.

Two Leadership NPQs

Focus on practical knowledge and skills that enable you to prepare for the next stage of your leadership career.


Ideal for those who have, or are aspiring to have, responsibility to lead teaching in a subject, year-group, key stage or phase.

“The NPQLT course structure and delivery meant that I could fit it around work and family life. I relished being able to dedicate time to my own development and the content online made this flexible and easier to manage. My NPQ enabled me to engage with the very best of current research-based evidence, and I enjoyed the challenge of putting research into practice”
-Lisa Hamilton, Lead Practitioner in English


Ideal for those who have, or are aspiring to have, responsibilities for leading the development of other teachers in their school.

“The NPQLTD course was like a professional “breath of fresh air” for me! It was such a valuable course, that certainly opened the door to new opportunities. The content always seemed to be relevant to my day to day life in school, and I learned so much from discussions with the course facilitators and my fellow course mates”
-Bev Brazier, Assistant Principal, Pool Hayes Academy


Ideal for those have, or are aspiring to have, responsibility to lead pupil behaviour and culture and support others in these areas.

“My NPQLBC helped me to understand leadership skills I already had and develop others. The course helped me to build confidence and I am now more motivated to apply for leadership positions in the future”
-Jade Brown, Teacher of Music, The Nicholas Hamond Academy


“The support and guidance provided by the facilitators of the course was exceptional and it really was a pleasure to be in a group with like-minded colleagues from a number of institutes”
-Debra Jones, Teacher of English, The Bristnall Hall Academy


Ideal for those have, or are aspiring to have, responsibility to lead literacy across a school, year group, key stage or phase.

“The NPQLL has given me the confidence to tackle new initiatives and I have discovered a structured, proven method of implementation that will allow me to maintain fidelity and maximise the reach and impact of development in my setting”
-Amy Mills, Teacher of Science, The Nicholas Hamond Academy


A completely updated NPQSL for those who are, or are aspiring to be, a senior leader with cross-school or cross-trust responsibilities.

“The NPQSL has been influential in developing my leadership skills and has encouraged me to think more critically about the role of implementation. It is an excellent course for teachers in Middle and Senior Leadership positions.”
-Joe Morrin, Assistant Principal and ATTI ECF Fellow


“NPQSL allowed me to thoroughly expand my knowledge of what exemplary senior leadership looks like, and to apply this knowledge to my leadership practice in school whilst also boosting my confidence”
-Reece Bhatoe, Trust Secondary Geography Lead and ATTI NPQ Fellow


A completely updated NPQH for those who are, or are aspiring to be, a headteacher or head of school.

“The asynchronous learning is very informative and the case studies explore how you would solve issues in your setting. I have thoroughly enjoyed the face to face sessions with facilitators and would highly recommend the course”
-Lisa Macey, Vice Principal, Pool Hayes Academy


“My NPQ provided me with opportunities to network, share experiences and engage in peer coaching with other principals, as well as engaging with highly skilled and experienced leaders who delivered the course”
-Nick Bradnick-Thompson, Principal, North Walsall Academy
