National Professional Qualifications
Accredited by the Department for Education (DfE), National Professional Qualifications (NPQs) are a nationally recognised suite of qualifications for teachers and school leaders at all levels; from those who want to develop expertise in high quality teaching practice, to those leading multiple schools across a trust or other group of schools.
Teachers and leaders employed in state funded schools and state funded organisations (including those that offer 16-19 places in England) will be able to access a fully funded NPQ, to support teachers and pupils following the disruption to learning faced as a result of COVID-19.
Why do an NPQ?
In undertaking an NPQ you will:
- Gain a nationally recognised qualification
- Learn from a rich curriculum based on evidence-based practice
- Be able to transfer your learning as and when you change schools
- Complete your learning in a flexible way- both virtually and in regional face to face groups
Our NPQs are designd to reduce the workload burden on teachers and school leaders, while still enabling you to develop and apply your knowledge, skills and understanding both to your current school, and to other contexts.

On behalf of CEFEL and the Catholic Education Service, The Diocese of Westminster Academy Trust are offering NPQ Senior Leadership and NPQ Leading Teaching.
|NPQ||Who is this NPQ aimed at?|
|Senior Leadership (NPQSL)|| |
For school leaders who are, or are aspiring to be, a senior leader with cross-school responsibilities.
|Leading Teaching (NPQLT)|| |
For teachers who have, or are aspiring to have, responsibilities for leading teaching in a subject, year group, key stage or phase.
Teachers and leaders employed in state funded schools and state funded organisations including those that offer 16-19 places in England will be able to access a fully funded NPQ from Autumn 2021, to support teachers and pupils following the disruption to learning faced as a result of COVID-19.
Access to funding remains conditional on successful validation of participants’ registration information against Teaching Regulation Agency records, so you must ensure that the information supplied to your NPQ provider matches your teacher record. You can check and update your record via the Teaching Regulation Agency Teacher Self-Service Portal.
