Worcestershire Global Leadership Academy was formed  as a partnership of Worcestershire Teaching Schools and was awarded the licence to deliver National Professional Qualifications by the Department for Education in 2016/17.  

WGLA is working in partnership with the University of Worcester to deliver final assessment. The NPQs will carry ‘Recognition of Prior Learning’ (RPL) credits that can be put towards a masters programme.

DfE funding is available for all schools in Category 5 and 6 areas and Opportunity Areas. A full list of these areas is available here.

Vision and Values

Our aim is to grow and develop strong leaders in education at all levels to improve the educational outcomes for all children across Worcestershire and the wider West Midlands region.

As an organisation, we act with integrity and respect for the diverse experiences of our delegates.  All our facilitators are serving school leaders and experienced trainers.  Our programmes are tailored to take into account the challenges that come with educational leadership and are underpinned by research and evidence from a variety of fields.
