The National Professional Qualification for Senior Leadership (NPQSL) forms part of the new Leadership Curriculum.  It can be completed in twelve to eighteen months and is a blend of face to face learning, online learning and self directed study.  You are required to be sponsored by your headteacher during the programme.  NPQSL is a qualification that provides national recognition of your leadership development and professional achievement as a senior leader.  NPQSL is aimed at senior leaders, including experienced middle leaders, deputy heads, SENCOs and advanced skills teachers and other senior staff looking for further professional development but not aspiring to headship at this stage in their career.

The Cabot Learning Federation brings a great deal to this programme.  With our federation of 15 Secondary and Primary Academies and our wider teaching school alliance we are able to provide a truly schools based experience covering a wide variation of contexts.  The programme will be delivered by outstanding practitioners who still work within the context of day to day education.  It really is a great opportunity to learn from those doing the job.
