Leadership Qualifications (NPQ's)

ELAN schools actively encourage colleagues to develop their knowledge and skills in school leadership and specialist areas of teaching practice by studying for National Professional Qualifications (NPQs).  

 

There are NPQS for specialist areas of teaching: 

 

  • Leading Teacher Development: for teachers who have, or are aspiring to have, responsibilities for leading the development of other teachers in their school 
  • Leading Teaching: for teachers who have, or are aspiring to have, responsibilities for leading teaching in a subject, year group, key stage or phase 
  • Leading Behaviour and Culture: for teachers who have, or are aspiring to have, responsibilities for leading behaviour and/or supporting pupil wellbeing in their school 

    and there are leadership NPQs: 

 

  • Senior Leadership: for school leaders who are, or are aspiring to be, a senior leader with cross-school responsibilities 
  • Headship: for school leaders who are, or are aspiring to be, a headteacher or head of school with responsibility for leading a school 
  • Executive Leadership: 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 
     

To ensure the best training and support for our schools and teachers, we use a lead training provider, The Education Development Trust, via our local teaching school hub alliance, The Five Counties TSHA. 


The next round of applications for training opens soon with courses staring in November. Further details will follow shortly.
