National Professional Qualification in Senior Leadership

Between Jan and July 2021

Looking for the chance to enhance your leadership skills with a professional, nationally recognised qualification? Keen to apply for an SLT post this year or enhance your work as an existing SLT leader? If the answer is yes, then The National Professional Qualification in Senior Leadership (NPQSL) is a must for you!

Following a very successful course which we have held for the past 2 years,  the NDTSA has once again secured the local provision of NPQ courses. As before, we are teaming up with the Jurassic Coast Teaching School Alliance and QTL (the approved body for NPQs) to deliver this course from January until July 2021. Please contact isabelle.rawlings@northdorsettsa.org.uk to register your interest. These will be online sessions until further notice.

QTL are based in the Faculty of Education at Winchester University and have a long track record of delivering the variety of NPQs available. This course will be the National Professional Qualification for Senior Leaders (NPQSL). The course also gives a further 60 credits towards a Masters degree and opens yet more horizons for those who attend. By facilitating the course locally, we will be able to cut down both travel time and costs for schools and will hopefully enable our potential and current SLT candidates to access the NPQSL to support the work they do in our schools, creating even more impact.

Not only will our course be based locally, but it will be supported by local expertise and facilitated by education experts from within our locality. The course will include 6 face to face days, supported by online learning and resources. It will run at a cost of £1400 per candidate but this will be reduced to £1300 if there are sufficient attendees.

If you are interested but require more information, please get in touch via info@northdorsettsa.org.uk. To apply, please complete the application form and return to QTL directly at qtl@winchester.ac.uk
