Focus on... NPQSL
Applications for the spring cohort close on 10 January 2023.
The NPQ in Senior Leadership has been revamped in the last two years, based on this framework from DfE. The Julian Teaching School Hub is offering the NPQSL in partnership with the Teacher Development Trust (TDT), with both autumn and spring cohorts.
The NPQSL is designed for those who are, or aspire to be, a senior leader with cross-school or cross-trust responsibilities. It contains modules on school culture, behaviour, organisational management, governance and accountability, 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, learning how to lead everything from whole school programmes to specialist areas. Your school will benefit from a skilful and research-informed leader who can contribute to a cohesive, impact-focused school leadership team.
