Who are Leadership programmes for?

This level has been developed for those leading a team within an organisation. It is often aligned with a middle leadership role within school. Level 1 leaders might include those who have recently taken on a middle leadership role or a new responsibility or those who are more established and experienced in their role. Level 1 modules are also available to aspiring leaders; teachers who are ambitious and keen to seek promotion to middle leadership roles.


National Professional Qualification for Senior Leadership – NPQSL
This level has been developed for those leading beyond a team at a senior level within an organisation. It covers areas that are relevant to participants with responsibilities and accountabilities which are traditionally associated with senior leadership roles (e.g. deputy or assistant head). The modules may also be appropriate to a Specialist Leaders of Education (SLEs) who has responsibility for supporting other schools. The modules will also be suitable for experienced  middle leaders who are ambitious for and keen to take up a senior leadership role.
