The Vantage Teaching School Hub are working with the Education Development Trust to provide the full suite of specialist and leadership NPQs starting in Autumn 2021.

Our evidence-informed NPQs are designed to meet the real needs of schools and leaders. By using local leaders to develop content and facilitate the face-to-face elements of training we ensure that all our materials and delivery are relevant, engaging and impactful. We pay close attention to workload and wellbeing, with a range of resources and support available for all, particularly new headteachers.

A blended approach to learning ensures that our NPQs are flexible and fit around the busy lives of school leaders. A mix of face-to-face delivery, webinars and guided self-study ensure candidates have the greater flexibility when engaging in their professional learning.

For teachers taking their first steps into specialist leadership roles, our Specialist NPQs support practitioners towards mastery in relevant expertise, giving them the knowledge and tools to develop others and extend their influence beyond their own classrooms.

Our Leadership NPQs guide experienced and aspiring leaders through learning that examines the three layers of influence: school culture; the organisational conditions which bring this culture to life; and how these conditions can promote excellent teaching in every classroom.
