Specialist NPQs Suite
Access a Suite of Specialist NPQs
Our suite of four specialist NPQs each target a specific area of school development that needs its own leadership and direction. Each programme gives teachers the depth in understanding needed to improve school and pupil outcomes.
Giving each area its own programme allows teachers in all schools across Halton, Warrington and Wigan to gain the knowledge, skills and expertise needed in order to have a real lasting impact on these important areas.
Anyone with a burning passion for one of the four specialist areas wishing to expand their knowledge and understanding should look to apply. This includes experienced leaders in senior positions and those who already hold specialist area positions.
What is available?
Teachers can complete one or more NPQs, to refine their skills and expertise.
We work in partnership with our Local Area Leads to coordinate locally based training cohorts across Halton, Warrington and Wigan, led by leaders from our schools and trusts in the area.
We are a licenced NPQ delivery partner for both Best Practice Network and Teach First.
