National Professional Qualifications

NPQ Frameworks

As of September 2021, a reformed suite of National Professional Qualifications (NPQs) will be available for teachers and leaders who want to develop their knowledge and skills in school leadership and specialist areas of teaching practice. These include:

  • reforming the three existing NPQs in senior leadership, headship and executive leadership
  • replacing the current NPQ in middle leadership with three new NPQs for teachers and leaders who want to develop their expertise in specialist areas of teaching practice

From September 2022, there will be the introduction of two new NPQs.
