National Professional Qualification for Headship
The NPQH is the first choice qualification for anyone aspiring to be a Headteacher or Principal. Although the requirement to have it has been removed, all our leadership teams and their Governing Bodies remain committed to a professional approach to the development of leadership expertise at all levels. Leadership doesn't happen by chance and alongside the quality of teaching and learning it is the single biggest factor in the success of a school and the life chances of the young people in their care.
Our NPQH is a unique and integrated course which not only focuses on the key skills needed for headship but is also informed by both national and international theory and practice. It’s a high bar that will challenge and develop talented leaders from all backgrounds to deliver educational excellence. This is a unique programme being delivered in full partnership with the University of Nottingham’s School of Education which could lead directly on to a MA in Educational Leadership and Management (ELM) if you wish to continue your studies beyond NPQH. The University of Nottingham is a member of the elite Russell group with one of the top research departments of education both nationally and internationally
