Supporting Education welcomes the Department for Education’s extension of free access to National Professional Qualification (NPQs) to maintained schools and academies. 150,000 educators are now be able to learn new skills and develop their careers thanks to £184 million of funding.
Our partners at Best Practice Network have delivered accredited training programmes for many years. One of the UK’s leading educational training providers, BPN has helped teachers at over 1,500 schools acquire the skills they need to become senior leaders.
This year, BPN are supporting Outstanding Leaders Partnership, a national network of over 100 teaching school alliances, multi-academy trusts, dioceses and school groups, to deliver these subsidised NPQs.
To allow more aspiring school leaders to gain the skills they need for success, BPN and OLP have extended the application deadline for their Spring NPQ programme to January 16th 2022. These free training courses are delivered on a part-time basis in order to fit into busy teacher timetables.
Teachers who would like to take advantage of this chance to grow their skillset should apply to do a free NPQ with Outstanding Leaders Partnership here before the deadline elapses.
