This qualification is intended for senior leaders who have significant cross school responsibilities, including experienced middle leaders, assistant heads, special educational needs co-ordinators and specialist leaders of education. The qualification will also benefit senior staff looking for further professional development but not necessarily aspiring to headship at this stage in their career. Please get in touch if you have any questions about whether or not this is the right programme for you. To achieve the qualification you will need to complete 2 essential and 2 elective modules from the following selection:
All modules will be supported by National College online activities and resources.
Following a 360 leadership assessment, your pathway through the programmes will be planned on the induction day with the programme facilitators. In addition to online access to materials you will be part of a regional online community to debate and learn with your peers. It is expected that each module requires around 50 hours of time commitment. This includes module delivery (10 hours), workplace learning, reading, reflection and online learning. You should expect to require five full days out of school over the academic year.
It is possible to request an exemption from part of this course, based on completion of previous National College courses or certain postgraduate qualifications. You can learn more information about these on the National College website.
The final assessment process (this part of the course is administered by a specialist provider, not NETSP) will enable you to demonstrate that you can deliver successful and sustainable whole school improvement in your own school setting and that you can use the experience to reflect upon and improve your own leadership competencies. It comprises one assessed task drawn from your work in school.
The recommended retail price for the NPQSL programme is £1400. Our offer of £850 includes a substantial discount and final assessment costs, with the exceptions below.
