    New NPQ's from Autumn 2021

    A new framework of NPQ's begins from September 2021. The DfE will be awarding contracts to their approved delivery partners in March 2021. Until that point, no bookings will be taken.

    What will the changes be?

    The current NPQML will be replaced by three new qualifications; 

    1. NPQ: leading behaviour and culture (NPQLBC) For teachers who have, or are aspiring to have, responsibilities for leading behaviour and/or supporting pupil wellbeing in their school.  

    2. NPQ: leading teacher development (NPQLTD) For teachers who have, or are aspiring to have, responsibilities for leading the development of other teachers in their school. They may have responsibilities for the development of all teachers across a school or specifically trainees or teachers who are early in their careers.  

    3. NPQ: leading teaching (NPQLT) For teachers who have, or are aspiring to have, responsibilities for leading teaching in a subject, year group, key stage, or phase.

    The current NPQSL, H, and EL will continue but with revised content;  

    1. NPQ: senior leadership (NPQSL) For school leaders who are, or are aspiring to be, a senior leader with cross-school responsibilities.  

    2. NPQ: headship (NPQH) For school leaders who are, or are aspiring to be, a headteacher or head of school with responsibility for leading a school. 

    3. NPQ: executive Leadership (NPQEL) For school leaders who are, or are aspiring to be, an executive headteacher or have a school trust CEO role with responsibility for leading several schools.
