Generate Teaching Hub is coordinating local cohorts of teachers to complete the NPQ, using experienced school leaders from our trust local school partners as facilitators. This means you get to learn alongside your peers and build local links of support, advice and ideas.


The frameworks for the NPQs draws from the very latest evidence and research into pedagogy, behaviour, curriculum and more. To best address the broad range of responsibilities of current and aspiring middle leaders, this is one of the suite of specialist NPQs that have been introduced which support alternate career development.

  • 18 months in length;
  • Provides 6 hours of induction

  • Requires 35 hours of formative assessment tasks, to support the in-school application of learning;
