NPQ for Leading Teacher Development – February 2022 Cohort
The third addition is the NPQ for Leading Teacher Development. This programme recognises that leading the development of other teachers is complex yet essential. It is based upon Robinson’s 2009 research that indicates that the greatest lever in school improvement is teachers’ excellent development. Teachers and leaders can now apply through the DfE Portal – CLICK HERE
This qualification is for school leaders who have or are aspiring to have, responsibilities for leading the development of other teachers. Those in this role need to have expertise across several specialist areas related to designing and implementing professional development. They also need to share in-depth knowledge about what the research-base tells us about great quality teaching.
This new qualification will likely have some central funding as it is part of the DfE’s broader changes to the education landscape, including implementing the Early Career Framework.
The three new specialist programmes will continue to be offered alongside the NPQ for Senior Leadership, NPQH (with additional support for new Headteachers) and the NPQ for Executive Leaders.
