Professional Leadership Development

Our aim is to provide Professional Leadership Development to prospective early, middle and senior leaders.

We also aim to:-

  • Develop future head teachers to help meet the most pressing national needs in primary, special, urban and faith schools
  • Support more women and leaders from black and minority ethnic backgrounds to become senior leaders
  • Put processes in place to identify potential leaders in areas of need
  • Develop potential leaders within and across your schools
  • Build strategic governance and partnerships in order to make decisions about developing and placing potential leaders

ETAL works in partnership with UCL Institute of Education’s Leadership Colab and Lewisham Teaching Schools Alliance Partnership (LTSAP) to deliver the National Professional Qualification in Middle Leadership (NPQML) and National Professional Qualification in Senior Leadership (NPQSL)  programmes. In 2017, the DfE convened top headteachers, multi-academy trust (MAT) CEOs, and other sector experts to reform the NPQs to prepare leaders more effectively for the range of leadership roles in today’s school system.  The new approach to the NPQs is putting the best schools and organisations in the driving seat of leadership professional development.

All Lewisham TSA Partnership Cluster face to face sessions are delivered by outstanding senior leaders who have received comprehensive facilitator training by UCL IoE.

Registration for the next cohort, which will run from Spring to Summer 2019, will open later this year.  Use the links  to access either the NPQML or NPQSL information and application form. Join our cluster, Lewisham TSA Partnershipand receive a discount on UCL IoE fees paid by you or your school.
