NPQ for Leading Literacy (NPQLL)

For English leads, Whole school Literacy leads.

This completely new Specialist NPQ has an evidence-informed curriculum design, connecting you to the latest research and best practice. Our research-rich course covers all of the core content in the government’s Framework for this qualification.

This programme will:

Understand how to effectively develop pupils’ language, reading and writing skills.

Implement effective strategies to improve pupils’ outcomes in literacy.

Professionally develop others, creating change and supporting school culture.

How long is the programme?
A blend of flexible online learning, online discussion, virtual workshops and face to face workshops, for a few hours study each week over 12 months. This is followed by an assessment where you will complete a 1500-word case study assessment to demonstrate your understanding of real leadership and change.

How much is the programme?

Funding for Autumn 2024 will target those teachers and leaders who work in the most challenging schools or educational settings, serving more disadvantaged communities. Scholarship funding to cover the full NPQ course cost will be available to teachers and leaders from: (i) the 50% of schools with the highest proportion of students who attract pupil premium funding; (ii) 16 to 19 educational settings identified as having high disadvantage.

Please note that The Avila Partnership will not be running this course in 2024/25. However, other providers are available.
