The National Professional Qualifications (NPQs) provide training and support for teachers and school leaders at all levels, from those who want to develop expertise in high quality teaching practice, such as behaviour management, to those leading multiple schools across trusts.

We are delighted to be working with Leadership Learning South East (LLSE) and Education Development Trust (EDT) to deliver the reformed NPQ framework across Medway, Gravesham and Dartford and the wider area of Kent.

The new NPQ frameworks are evidenced based and ensure a clear path of professional development building on the learning from ITT core content framework and the new ECF.

Courses will begin in November 2022 and February 2023.

The map below shows the location of our clusters.

Executive leaders are typically responsible for several schools located on different sites either as a cluster within a larger trust or as a trust themselves. Their work is overwhelmingly strategic and relies on working with and through their colleagues to ensure every pupil gets an excellent education. This qualification offers you an opportunity to develop a depth of expertise across a number of specialist areas related to the role.
