The National Professional Qualification for Senior Leadership (NPQSL) is a qualification that provides national recognition of your leadership development and professional achievement as a senior leader. It is increasingly becoming the qualification of choice for schools recruiting the next generation of inspiring leaders.

Who Can Apply?

The NPQSL is aimed at senior leaders in primary, secondary and special school settings with cross-school responsibilities, this includes experienced middle leaders, deputy heads, special educational needs coordinators (SENCOs) and advanced skills teachers, and other senior staff looking for further professional development but not aspiring to headship at this stage in their career.

What's Involved?

This qualification has a flexible, modular structure that combines essential modules with the freedom to specialise or develop your own professional areas of interest through the choice of elective modules. You may, for example, want to learn about effective whole school management or develop your skills in building partnerships.

Inspiring Leaders is one of the licensed providers who are able to deliver this excellent professional qualification. We have the capacity to deliver across the East Midlands region with an outstanding team of accomplished Senior Leaders and Head Teachers. The face to face sessions will take place across the East Midlands ensuring there will be sessions in your locality. Small cohorts will ensure a very personal and supportive learning journey. Your leadership journey will be supported throughout by experienced and well regarded facilitators as well as a wealth of online learning opportunities.


The course takes between 12-18 months to complete, depending on the individuals learning journey.
