Focus on... NPQLL

Study this brand-new qualification from Spring 2023.

The NPQ in Leading Literacy is a brand-new specialist qualification based on this framework from DfE. The Julian Teaching School Hub is offering the NPQLL in partnership with the Teacher Development Trust (TDT), starting in Spring 2023.

The NPQLL is designed for teachers who have, or aspire to have, responsibility for leading literacy across a school, year group, key stage, or phase. It contains content that will teach you to support colleagues to develop all pupils' language capability and wider understanding of language, as well as word reading, reading comprehension, and writing skills.

You will also learn how to contribute to effective curriculum development linked to teaching, curriculum and assessment across the school; and design and implement literacy improvement strategies.

Facilitated by two literacy 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 12 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 specialist 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.
