Develop the skills, knowledge and confidence that you need to lead a high-performing team in a school and to improve classroom practice
Thomas Estley Learning Alliance (TELA) are one of only 40 nationally accredited providers of NPQs. The NPQML consists of 3 face to face days and 3 twilight sessions. You’ll need to complete the essential modules and a final assessed school based task.
The NPQML final assessment is a task drawn from work on a school improvement priority, where you lead at team level for at least 2 terms. You’ll need to show that you can make successful and sustainable improvement in your school, and use the experience to reflect upon and improve your own leadership skills.
All twilights and face-to-face days are held at Leicester Teaching School, Rushey Mead Academy, Melton Rd, Leicester LE4 7AN
