National Professional Qualification for Middle and Senior Leadership
The Institute of Education has formed a partnership with over 150 schools, including Guildford High School (first Teaching School within United Learning) and Lambeth Academy. Together we are called Leadership CoLab, and now provide bespoke courses for NPQML (National Professional Qualification for Middle Leadership) and NPQSL (National Professional Qualification for Senior Leadership ).
These courses are open to both United Learning staff and staff from local schools, and offer new qualifications that provide national recognition of leadership development and professional achievement as a middle and senior leader. The qualifications are designed to support individuals in becoming highly effective leaders with the skills, confidence and knowledge to drive successful team performance and improved classroom practice (NPQML) and to contribute to the strategic development of the school as part of the senior leadership team (NPQSL).
