In conjunction with the Church of England, we can now offer National Professional Qualifications (NPQs) to all of our schools. From a teacher looking to deepen their expertise, or a school leader wanting to stretch themselves to the next transition in their career, we offer an NPQ programme for all stages of a teacher's career. All of our NPQs are fully funded, with additional support available to help cover aspects of the participant's release time.
The NPQ's include:
|Leading Teacher Development||12 months||teachers who have, or are aspiring to have, responsibilities for leading the development of other teachers in their school.|
|Leading Teaching||12 months||teachers who have, or are aspiring to have, responsibilities for leading teaching in a subject, year group, key stage or phase.|
|Leading Behaviour & Culture||12 months||teachers and all school staff who have, or are aspiring to have, responsibilities for leading behaviour and/or supporting pupil wellbeing in their school.|
|Senior Leadership||18 months||school leaders who are, or are aspiring to be, a senior leader with cross-school responsibilities.|
|Headship||18 months||school leaders who are, or are aspiring to be, a headteacher or head of school with responsibility for leading a school.|
The Diocese of Worcester is the delivery partner for the wider region on behalf of the Church of England, which encompasses the following dioceses:
Some of our face-to-face courses are held at our offices in Lowesmoor; others may be held at venues across the dioceses above.
All courses are a combination of online webinars, self-study and face-to-face sessions. They are underpinned by recent research, and allow participants to embed this into their own practice and policies. The Church of England NPQs also benefit from small group coaching sessions, which further explore participants' learning.
