Our purpose is to facilitate school improvement by offering the highest standard of professional development and leadership programmes to teachers and school leaders from early years settings, nurseries, schools and academies at an affordable price. We deliver Early Career Framework and National Professional Qualifications in the region for the region, setting national standards for excellence. These programmes form part of the golden thread of teacher development set out by the Department for Education.
We work with schools to ensure that delivery suites their circumstances, and all programmes can be adapted to a blended or fully online model.
We are accredited by the Department for Education to deliver the current National Professional Qualifications (2018 to 2022) at four levels: 'Middle Leadership', 'Senior Leadership', 'Headship' and 'Executive Leadership'. We are also an approved delivery partner for the UCL Early Career Framework Programme and as a member of the School-led Network we are offering the newly reformed NPQs, the three specialist NPQs, and the three leadership NPQs as well as the 'Additional Support offer' for new headteachers.
As part of our accredited status, we also show our policies on our website.
