National Professional Qualification in Senior Leadership

Course details

The newly redesigned National Professional Qualification for Senior Leadership (NPQSL) provides national recognition of your senior leadership achievements.

The qualification will support you in becoming a highly effective senior leader with the skills, confidence and knowledge to contribute to the strategic development of your organisation as part of the senior leadership team.

NPQSL is suitable for individuals who have responsibility for leading a team and are involved in leading a range of issues that affect the whole school.

It is therefore aimed at experienced middle leaders, SLT, Assistant and recent Deputy Heads, SENCOs and Lead Practitioners.

The six up-to-date and highly relevant modules are:

· Strategy and Improvement

· Teaching and Curriculum Excellence

· Leading with Impact

· Working in Partnership

· Managing Resources and Risks

· Increasing Capability

NPQSL with Windsor Academy Trust offers:

  • High quality learning materials, refined and improved during our extensive experience delivering the national professional qualifications,
  • Opportunities to refine your own leadership by reviewing research and case studies and through discussion with peers and a coach,
  • Online support via Google Classroom
  • Real benefits for you, your students and your school
  • Twilight programmes minimise the impact on your classroom responsibilities.

During this sustained learning over one year you will undertake a 360 feedback activity, network extensively with peers, receive input from specialists from across the region, focus on improvement for your pupils via an in-school project and work towards a final assessment in Autumn 2018.

The Government has announced some funding for this programme. Due to the high demand that this has caused we are currently taking bookings for a second cohort to fulfil the demand - please contact businesscentre@Windsor.windsoracademytrust.org.uk to register your interest without commitment.

“One of the areas for me to develop further was my self-awareness. I have worked more consciously/reflectively to address this area of leadership with positive outcomes”.
