National Professional Qualifications

National Professional Qualifications (NPQs)

Kent Teaching School Hub in partnership with Ambition Institute and the Church of England, are pleased to offer the full new NPQ suite for the academic year 2021-2022. These DfE accredited qualifications offer an opportunity for leadership development at all levels, which completes the golden thread of teacher development running from initial training and early career development through the ECF.

The new NPQ frameworks have been developed by looking at a wide evidence base including how children learn, what impacts their behavior and how they are assessed. Accredited by the DfE and approved by the Education Endowment Foundation, these frameworks are based on what the evidence, on balance tells us about what works.

  • Online Self Study
  • Face-to-face training days, clinics and a chance to connect
  • Assessment through completion of a case study

Scholarships:

The DfE intended to provide some scholarship funding for elements of the NPQ suite, and will release details in due course. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/national-professional-qualifications-npqs-reforms/national-professional-qualifications-npqs-reforms.
