NPQML (National Professional Qualification for Middle Leaders) and NPQSL (Senior Leadership)

The St Helens TSA has successfully run NPQML (National Professional Qualification for Middle Leaders) and NPQSL (Senior Leadership) in St Helens for 3 years, this is supported by the Best Practice Network. So far we have trained 136 delegates from across all phases. Delegates have come from settings across St Helens, Wigan, Warrington, Liverpool, Knowsley, Sefton, Salford, Widnes and Manchester.

The face to face sessions, delivered by serving Head Teachers from St Helens (and surrounding areas) has proven to be the most positive aspect of the course with 100% of candidates stating they would recommend the training to a colleague.

We are now recruiting for the Spring 2017 intake of the National Professional Qualifications for Middle and Senior Leadership. The registration deadline is Friday 20th January 2017. Training will start in Feb/March 2017.

Please see attached further information, outlining the application criteria and how to apply.

If you are applying and wish to complete the Face to Face sessions in St Helens with facilitators from The St Helens TSA then please indicate on your application form.
