National Professional Qualifications for School Leaders

NPQML, NPQSL and NPQH (National Professional Qualification for Middle Leadership, Senior Leadership, and Headship) are national qualifications that provide recognition of your leadership development and professional achievement as a middle or senior leader, supporting you to develop the skills, knowledge and confidence that you need to lead a high-performing team in a school and to improve classroom practice.  

Training with us 

The Worcestershire Global Leadership Academy (WGLA) is a partnership between Worcestershire Teaching Schools and education providers. The partnership is a DfE accredited provider of National Professional Qualifications (NPQs) at all levels to teachers and aspiring or existing leaders. 

Our facilitators for the modules are outstanding middle or senior leaders who have undergone training specifically for this purpose.  Materials are delivered in an engaging and interactive manner and we are very keen to develop a cohort identity which allows candidates to support each other’s learning journey.

If your school is located within a Category 5 or 6 area, we are able to apply for funding on your behalf from the Department for Education. If the application is successful, you will be eligible for a fully funded scholarship.

Should you withdraw from a programme, please be aware that your school will be liable for any costs incurred. Our full refund policy is available here.
