National Professional Qualifications

From September 2021, a reformed suite of National Professional Qualifications (NPQs) will be available for teachers and leaders who want to develop their knowledge and skills in school leadership and specialist areas of teaching practice.

These reforms include:

  • reforming the three existing NPQs in senior leadership, headship and executive leadership
  • replacing the current NPQ in middle leadership with three new NPQs for teachers and leaders who want to develop their expertise in specialist areas of teaching practice

NPQs in specialist areas of teaching

The three new NPQs are:

  • leading teacher development: supporting the training and development of others
  • leading teaching: developing teachers who are subject leads or responsible for improving teaching practice in a subject or phase
  • leading behaviour and culture: developing teachers who have responsibilities for leading behaviour and culture

About the School-Led Network

Harris City Academy Crystal Palace Teaching School Hub will be a Partner with School-Led Network to deliver the new reformed NPQs. The School-Lead Network offers practical, evidence-based leadership development by today’s school leaders, for tomorrow’s school leaders.

SLNThe School-Led Network programmes build on what we know works from practice works - enabling leaders to enhance their leadership and develop others.

The School Led Network NPQs are designed and delivered by leaders from some of the UK’s most successful and top-performing schools and MATs, including Harris Federation, Outwood Grange Academies Trust, Star Academies and a range of NE schools and MATs.

These schools exemplify practical excellence in school leadership, teaching, behaviour and teacher development. We want to work with other schools and partnerships so we can learn together.


Programme information

The delivery model is grounded in tried-and-tested evidence of effective school improvement from both the UK and US. The programmes are underpinned by theory, mapped for progression across all qualification levels, and application of learning prioritised to facilitate successful implementation.


Programme model

The programme will use ‘see it’, name it, do it’ as an organisational structure for scaffolding learning to the point of mastery. The model is a highly applied and personalised approach coined by the internationally renowned Leverage Leadership Institute. 

  • See it. The approach goes beyond theory by using current, real-life models of exemplary practice.
  • Name it. By identifying features of exemplary practice, the invisible is made visible. Participants reflect on their current practice and name their ‘gaps’.
  • Do it. Participants are guided through implementation planning with time for practice, peer feedback and the use of gap tasks. As part of formative assessment, participants then ‘fix their gaps’ by applying their learning in school. 

Embedded assessment practice

Opportunities to ‘do it’, through practice and planning, give the best chance of successful implementation and lead to rapid school improvement. Application of learning provides regular practice opportunities for final scenario-based assessment.


Blended learning

The programme is made up of a blend of synchronous and asynchronous, in-person, online and self-study components
