The National Professional Qualification for Senior Leadership (NPQSL) is a qualification that provides national recognition of your leadership development and professional achievement as a senior leader.
The NPQSL is aimed at senior leaders in primary, secondary and special school settings with cross-school responsibilities. This includes experienced middle leaders, deputy heads, assistant heads and other senior staff looking for further professional development but not aspiring to headship at this stage in their career.
NPQSL is delivered in local clusters using practitioners and outstanding school leaders from across the region. It is expected that participants will complete the programme within 12-18 months.
