New Specialist NPQs

What is changing?
The three existing NPQs in Senior Leadership, Headship and Executive Leadership have also been refreshed, ensuring that they are underpinned by the latest evidence of what works.
  • National Professional Qualification in Executive Leadership (NPQEL)
  • National Professional Qualification in Headship (NPQH)
  • National Professional Qualification in Senior Leadership (NPQSL) 
The existing Middle Leaders NPQ has been replaced with three new specialist NPQs to best address the broad range of responsibilities of current and aspiring middle leaders.
  • National Professional Qualification in Leading Behaviour & Culture   (NPQLBC)
  • National Professional Qualification in Leading Teacher Development (NPQLTD)
  • National Professional Qualification in Leading Teaching (NPQLT) 
These new and updated NPQs will ensure these qualifications continue to offer the best possible support to teachers and leaders wanting to expand their knowledge and expertise and can help them in taking the next step in their career.
