Our National Professional Qualifications (NPQs) have been developed to provide evidence informed frameworks for effectively leading in the following specialist areas:
If you currently lead or aspire to lead in one of these areas, a Specialist NPQ with EDT is the ideal next step in your continuing professional development.
I feel that the [NPQ] has empowered me to make changes within the running of my Key Stage. I have also gained a deeper understanding of some aspects of management.
- Julie Johnson, NPQ for Leading Teaching (NPQLT) participant
Most teachers and leaders are surprised to learn that NPQs only require around one hour of study per week on average. EDT’s NPQs are designed to fit around your existing schedule, with a focus placed on accessible, bite-size online learning that you can pick up anywhere at any time.
High-quality CPD doesn’t have to come directly out of your school’s budget – or your own pocket. Not only are our NPQs accredited by the DfE, but they are fully funded too for most staff within state-funded schools and academies. Multiple teachers from the same school can receive funding for NPQs at the same time, too.
I find that I try and dedicate an hour a week to studies for my NPQ and I can do that anytime. It fits in really well with a really busy teaching job, and I haven’t found that it’s been too much work.
- Rachel Toy, NPQ for Leading Teacher Development (NPQLTD) participant
