National Professional Qualifications (NPQs) are a nationally recognised, DfE accredited suite of qualifications for teachers and school leaders. The NPQ offer covers all levels of leadership from middle to executive leadership.


Why complete an NPQ?

  • The revised suite of NPQs has been refreshed to reduce the workload burden on teachers  
  • The NPQ programmes provide opportunity for applicants to gain a nationally recognised qualification 

  • Learn from a rich curriculum based on evidence-based practice 

  • Build a transferable knowledge and skill base which you can take with you if you change schools 

  • Access training and development in a flexible way, both virtually and in regional face to face groups 

  • Network with like-minded teachers and leaders who are at a similar career stage 

  • Work alongside facilitators and coaches who have experience and expertise in the area of leadership addressed by the programme 



Redhill Hub NPQ Partnership

We work with the Church of England Foundation for Educational Leadership and Teach First, to deliver the full suite of NPQs. We work in collaboration with the Flying High Teaching School Hub and Lincoln Anglican Academy Trust (LAAT) to deliver the NPQs over a defined area of the East Midlands.

We have selected the very best facilitators and coaches from across our partnership to facilitate our programmes and have created an offer we are confident will meet the needs of existing and aspirant leaders at a local and national level.
