Focus on... NPQH

Applications for the spring cohort close on 10 January 2023.

The NPQ in Headship has been revamped in the last two years, based on this framework from DfE. The Julian Teaching School Hub is offering the NPQH in partnership with the Teacher Development Trust (TDT), with both autumn and spring cohorts.

The NPQH is designed for those who are, or aspire to be, a headteacher or head of school. It contains modules on curriculum and assessment, organisational management, working in partnership, and more.

Facilitated by experienced school and system leaders who have been recruited and trained by the Julian Teaching School Hub and TDT, 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.

You will benefit from facilitator and peer support as you develop knowledge and understanding of how to apply the evidence on school improvement through people development, working with staff, pupils, governors and the wider community to create lasting change. Your school will benefit from a skilful and research-informed organisational leader with the capability to lead school in conjunction with a motivated and coherent senior leadership team.
