National Professional Qualifications:
The National Professional Qualifications (NPQs) are a national, voluntary suite of recognised professional qualifications, designed to support the professional development of teachers, leaders, and aspiring leaders inside and outside of the classroom. They are part of a wider set of DfE reforms to teacher development, which together create a ‘golden thread’ of high-quality, evidence-informed teacher development opportunities, spanning across the entirety of a teacher’s career.
We are delighted to be working in partnership with two of the NPQ lead training providers:
Working together with Education Development Trust and Best Practice Network means that, as a Teaching School Hub, we can ensure that all teachers and leaders have local access to partner-led delivery. Thus, enabling us to develop and nurture the local school leaders of the future.
