National Professional Qualification for Leading Teacher Development (NPQLTD)

What is the National Professional Qualification for Leading Teacher Development (NPQLTD)?

For teachers who have, or are aspiring to have, responsibilities for leading the development of other teachers in their school.

Our NPQLTD programme will:

Develop evidence-led expertise equipping you to respond effectively to the challenges and opportunities of developing teacher expertise and classroom practice across your school context.

Deepen your knowledge application to enable you to help your teams keep improving through implementation of the Early Career Framework knowledge base for all staff, building a culture of teacher excellence and designing/delivering effective professional development.

Provide you with a dedicated expert coach who will champion, challenge and encourage your leadership journey, developing your specialist knowledge and supporting your wellbeing and resilience as a leader.

Create networked communities of practice of fellow professionals to support your development for the long-term, enabling the collective expertise of the whole education system to grow and develop

Programme delivery is based on a 4-stage learning cycle which offers a rich blend of online, asynchronous and face-to-face learning experiences.

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.
