The nationally accredited programme for middle leaders, facilitated by Bristol head teachers and experienced senior leaders
National Professional Qualification for Middle Leadership (NPQML)
This is the nationally accredited leadership programme for middle leaders that runs for approximately one year to 18 months. It has been completely rewritten and tailored to the contexts of schools in the area and is led by Bristol Primary Headteachers, specialist leaders of education and senior leaders and has been adapted to ensure that current good practice from Bristol schools is shared as a part of the programme.
The NPQML is aimed at teachers who are either new to a middle leader role e.g. leading a core subject, or who wish to take on a middle leadership role in the near future, leading a team within a school.
The programme prepares teachers to take on a leadership or TLR role through face to face training in aspects of leadership and through directed independent study and gap tasks. They will be required to lead an impact initiative and meet the national standards to complete the programme successfully.
Candidates are expected to complete the qualification within a 12 -18 month period and benefit from:
face-to-face training events
access to 360° leadership skills diagnostics
support from a nominated in-school mentor
facilitation from serving school leaders in outstanding schools
Modules tailored to do different school contexts
local and flexible access to high quality leadership training
virtual learning environment enabling flexible access to course resources and support community
The Bristol Primary Teaching School Alliance was awarded the contract to run the prestigious suite of NPQ nationally recognised leadership qualifications by the DfE in 2017.
