New National Professional Qualifications (NPQs)

We are delighted to be a delivery partner for the new and reformed NPQs for UCL Institute of Education. Across our region, we have a strong record of collaboration and delivering NPQs for UCL and the impact can be seen in many of our schools.  We will be shortly be sending a flyer containing further information from UCL Institute of Education so that you are fully informed.

The NPQs are designed to provide quality CPD and a golden thread of development from the Early Career Framework.

NPQs available from Autumn 2021

The three new NPQs in specialist areas of teaching are:

  • Leading Teacher Development: for teachers who have, or are aspiring to have, responsibilities for leading the development of other teachers in their school.
  • Leading Teaching: for teachers who have, or are aspiring to have, responsibilities for leading teaching in a subject, year group, key stage or phase.
  • Leading Behaviour & Culture: for teachers who have, or are aspiring to have, responsibilities for leading behaviour and/or supporting pupil wellbeing in their school.

The reformed leadership NPQs are:

  • Senior Leadership: for school leaders who are, or are aspiring to be, a senior leader with cross-school responsibilities.
  • Headship: for school leaders who are, or are aspiring to be, a headteacher or head of school with responsibility for leading a school.
  • Executive Leadership: for school leaders who are, or are aspiring to be, an executive headteacher or a school trust CEO role with responsibility for leading several schools.

How to apply

If you wish to work with UCL Institute of Education, please follow the steps outlined below:

Applicants will need to apply individually after discussion with their Headteacher or senior leader and will need their Teachers Reference number (TRN) and their National Insurance number when registering.

Step 1: Go to DfE

 https://register-national-professional-qualifications.education.gov.uk/

Step 2:

Choose UCL Institute of Education as a Lead Provider.  The DfE platform will check the applicants TRN and, if appropriate, national insurance number. This is where eligibility for scholarships is checked. The DfE will then pass on details to UCL who will contact the participant directly asking them to complete the application process via a link to the application form.

Step 3:

UCL Institute of Education will notify the participant if they are successful and transfer the details to us as a Delivery Partner.

Step 4:

Sussex Coast Schools Alliance (delivery partner) will then contact participants with dates of the programme and details of how to prepare.

This process is the same for all national providers.

Deadlines for applications:

All applications must be submitted by 4th October 2021. We anticipate the programmes will start in November 2021.

We will possibly be recruiting again later on in the academic year but cannot guarantee if scholarships will be available.

As this is a completely different process for application, please do not hesitate to contact us for further information or support at SCSA@benfield.brighton-hove.sch.uk
