NPQML

In partnership with Leadership CoLab (UCL: Institute of Education), we are pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications from colleagues wishing to register on the Richmond Teaching School Alliance’s local cluster programme for the National Professional Qualification for Middle Leadership (NPQML) starting in the Spring Term 2020.

The Richmond Teaching School Alliance have been delivering the NPQML programme for 4 years and delegates comment on how much they enjoy being part of a local cohort in which they get to network with colleagues from local Primary and Secondary Schools We welcome applications from all sectors of education including Nursery, Independent and Special Schools.

The Programme:

The NPQML will help you develop the skills, knowledge and confidence you need to lead a high-performing team in a school and to improve classroom practice. Each module involves practical learning in your school, face-to-face peer and facilitated learning, plus reading, reflection and online learning.

Curriculum Framework:

The curriculum framework is built around the six content areas and seven leadership behaviours, all of which are common to each level of NPQ, enabling leaders to develop the depth and breadth of knowledge and experience progressively through the levels. The six key content areas set out what a leader should know or be able to do:

  • Strategy and Improvement
  • Teaching and Curriculum Excellence
  • Leading with Impact
  • Working in Partnership
  • Managing Resources and Risks
  • Increasing Capability

The seven leadership behaviours focus on how the best leaders operate:

  • Commitment
  • Collaboration
  • Personal Drive
  • Resilience
  • Awareness
  • Integrity
  • Respect

Each module provides opportunities to access up to 50 hours of blended learning:

  • face-to-face facilitated learning held at Waldegrave School
  • workplace learning and practice activities, face-to-face activities, including peer and facilitated learning and reading, reflection and online learning
  • online sources of material including many examples of practice and activities to pursue 
  • 360 diagnostic survey: a peer-led analysis of your leadership style and objectives providing the foundations for your targeted leadership development

Completion and Assessment:

Completion of the NPQML generally takes around 12 months. There will be a final assessment at the end of the programme, and currently this is an assessed strategic leadership task in your own school, linked to school improvement activities undertaken in the workplace and your learning from the modules.

Your sponsor (headteacher or line manager) will also be required to submit a formal verification of your progress during the assessment activity - based on observation of your leadership during the leadership task.

Who can apply?

Those who are, or aspiring to become a middle leader with responsibility for leading a team e.g. a key stage leader, a curriculum area leader, a pastoral services leader, a subject leader, a special educational needs co-ordinator (SENCO) or a head of department. This includes those who are, or aspiring to be, a middle leader with cross-school responsibilities e.g. a Specialist Leader in Education (SLE).

Cost:

The programme fee for January 2020 is: £890. The programme would cost £1,010 if you decide to work centrally with the UCL: Institute of Education.   

Location:

This course will be facilitated at Waldegrave School (Fifth Cross Road, Twickenham, TW2 5LH). You will work with a small group of fellow middle leader colleagues from schools in your area, and you will meet the same people at each session. You will also have the support of a dedicated cluster leader.

How to Apply:

All applications will need to be made online via the following UCL link

Please ensure you select ‘Richmond TSA’ as your cluster selection when completing the application form.

Deadline for Applications:

The deadline for the receipt of applications is Monday 13th January.
