“Completing the NPQML course gave me a greater understanding of my role as a middle leader. I was able to reflect on my core values as a leader and developed my own self-awareness. Since completing the course I have taken on further responsibility in my school and was confident that I could discuss my own vision for a leadership role in interview.”
