The Department for Education accredits a range of providers to design, deliver, and assess the National Professional Qualifications (NPQs). Northern Education Trust will work in partnership with Teach First for the delivery of the NPQH. It is a national qualification that provides recognition of leadership development and professional achievement in aspiring staff.
The National Professional Qualification in Headship (NPQH) is for school leaders who are, or are aspiring to be, a headteacher or head of school with responsibility for leading a school.
