Focus on... NPQEYL

Study this brand-new qualification from Spring 2023.

The NPQ in Early Years Leadership is a brand-new leadership qualification based on this framework from DfE. The Julian Teaching School Hub is offering the NPQEYL in partnership with the Teacher Development Trust (TDT), starting in Spring 2023.

The NPQEYL is designed for leaders who are, or aspire to be: managers of private, voluntary and independent nurseries; headteachers of school-based or maintained nurseries; and childminders with leadership responsibilities. It contains content such as appropriate provision for babies, managing a nursery, safeguarding requirements and financial and business needs.

Facilitated by two Local Authority EY experts, the course is a blend of flexible online learning, online discussion, virtual workshops and face-to-face workshops, for a few hours study each week over 18 months. This is followed by an assessment where you will complete a 1500-word case study assessment to demonstrate your understanding of real leadership and change. This completely new Leadership NPQ has an evidence-informed curriculum design, connecting you to the latest research and best practice. Our research-rich course covers all the core content in the government’s Framework for this qualification.
