National Professional Qualification for Executive Leadership (NPQEL)

The National Professional Qualification for Executive Leadership (NPQEL) is a new qualification for:

  • Serving executive headteachers working across two or more schools
  • Aspiring Chief Executive Officers (CEOs)
  • Significant strategic leaders within a MAT or equivalent


It will draw on the expertise of Directors and CEOs of successful Multi-Academy Trusts from across the region as well as input from leaders outside of education to address the challenges of leading multiple organisations. The programme will provide a personalised learning journey, enabling delegates to learn from both education and non-education specialists. This process will provide a flexible, focused and purposeful learning experience, enabling participants to reflect on their own contexts and the next stage in their development.
