National Professional Qualifications

We are delighted to announce that the Cabot Learning Federation is a Department for Education accredited provider of the National Professional Qualifications  (NPQH, NPQSL& NPQML).

Please contact or telephone 0117 244 6233 for more information or to register your interest.

Building on our highly successful delivery of the national professional qualifications for the last five years, we will continue to provide outstanding leadership development for leaders across the South West. Our programmes are run by the CLF Institute, using the expertise of current leaders within the CLF academies and partner organisations, providing an exciting, relevant and challenging experience for all participants, from early years to Post 16. 

In April 2012, we were delighted to be able to announce that the CLF Teaching School, which since then has been renamed the CLF Institute, had been awarded one of the three licenses in the South West to deliver the National College level 1 to 3 leadership curriculum. These programmes are delivered from schools within the federation and our wider teaching school alliance across Bristol, BANES, Weston super Mare and South Gloucestershire. In this way we feel we fully utilise the outstanding heads and practitioners that provide the best possible learning experience for everyone.


NPQH, NPQSL and NPQML are delivered by The Cabot Learning Federation.

We will shortly also be offering the NPQEL qualification.
