Develop the skills, knowledge and confidence you need to be a highly effective senior leader in a school
Thomas Estley Learning Alliance (TELA) are one of only 40 nationally accredited providers of NPQs. The course is designed and delivered by experienced headteachers, National Leaders of Education and teams of experts, with modules designed to meet the needs of schools across the East Midlands, including narrowing the gap with white working class boys and leadership in faith schools. The NPQSL consists of 6 face-to-face days and three twilight sessions. You’ll need to complete a number of interim school based learning tasks and a final assessment.

The NPQSL final assessment is competency based, testing the main competencies that are required for successful senior leadership. You’ll be expected to lead, for an extended period, a school improvement priority in your school. This needs to be achievable within a 12 month period and must produce positive impact and sustainable change.
