National Professional Qualifications

The dynamic new NPQ frameworks are built from a rich, evidence-informed understanding of what works in school leadership, and they create a clear and exciting pathway for teachers’ progression throughout their whole careers.

NPQs 

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.

The Redhill Hub works with the Church of England Foundation for Educational Leadership 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.

If you are interested in accessing one of our NPQ programmes, all the information you need can be found here on our website and on the Cefel website where you will also find the application forms.

Please remember that all applicants must be sponsored by their Headteacher or line manager who will also need to complete the relevant section on the application form.
