NPQML Application Form

NPQML is aimed at individuals with responsibility for leading a team, including leaders of key stage, subject, curriculum, heads of department, pastoral leaders. This includes those who are, or are aspiring to be, a middle leader with cross-school responsibilities e.g. a ‘Specialist Leader of Education (SLE). The qualification will support you in becoming a highly effective middle leader with the skills, confidence and knowledge to drive successful team performance and improved classroom practice across your team. The support of a ‘sponsor’ from your school, usually your line manager or Headteacher, is essential to enable you to make the most of the programme.
