The National Professional Qualification for Headship (NPQH) is well-established as the first choice qualification for anyone aspiring to be a headteacher or principal, and has been redesigned to produce an outstanding generation of school and academy leaders. NPQH follows a leadership curriculum based on Masters level criteria and focuses on developing the knowledge, skills and attributes of a successful headteacher.

We intend to offer  these National Programmes with Leadership East, who are awaiting the announcement with regards to final accreditation.

What is the NPQH programme?

  • To achieve the NPQH qualification, you’ll need to successfully complete three essential and two elective modules involving extended case studies and related in-school assignments with a stronger focus on leading teaching, behaviour and performance management.
  • It provides you with a credible, valid and reliable final assessment report to support governing body interview panels and give you the competitive edge when applying for headships.
  • It has been designed in collaboration with some of the country’s leading headteachers and academics to give balance between academic rigour and applied leadership.
  • The flexible modular structure combines core elements with the freedom to specialise or develop your own areas of professional interest.
  • The in-school placement combines a whole-school strategic leadership task with the opportunity to work alongside an experienced headteacher in a different context.
