Blending intensive coaching, face-to-face training and online learning, Teaching Leaders helps schools to retain and develop high-potential staff, improve pupil outcomes in the key areas of reading, writing and maths and close achievement gaps for disadvantaged children.

Teaching Leaders NPQSL

We have received confirmation from the Department for Education that we have been awarded a licence to deliver National Professional Qualifications (NPQs).

We can now confirm that Teaching Leaders will include the option to gain the NPQSL*.

Applications for Teaching Leaders are now closed. If you are interested in nominating middle leaders for the programme next year, or in joining the programme yourself, please register your interest.


*The exact additional requirements are currently being determined and we will provide further information on this during our induction and summer residential events. There will be a small additional cost to cover the assessment for the award of the qualification.
