The National Professional Qualification for Middle Leadership (NPQML) is accredited by the Department for Education (DfE). The qualification is delivered by the Outstanding Leaders Partnership (OLP), a collaborative partnership of schools, teaching school alliances and multi-academy trusts, managed and supported by Best Practice Network.
NPQML is for those who are, or are aspiring to become, a middle leader with responsibility for leading a team such as a key stage leader, a curriculum area leader, a pastoral services leader, a subject leader or a head of department. This includes those who are, or are aspiring to become, middle leaders with cross-school responsibilities, for example Specialist Leaders of Education (SLEs).
Our Teaching School Alliance holds the NPQML face to face days centrally at Keswick School or Cumbria Local Enterprise Partnership Conference Centre, Redhills, Penrith, Cumbria, CA11 0DT. We have one course intake in the autumn term. This year’s programme was over-subscribed with 28 delegates successfully gaining a place. We hope to recruit for the 2020 programme in the Autumn term 2019.
