We are part of the Ambition NPQ Alliance, delivering National Professional Qualifications (NPQs) in partnership with Ambition Institute, the graduate school for teachers, school leaders and system leaders.


We design, manage and deliver a bespoke NPQH offer around the core NPQ curricula, content and resources that Ambition Institute provides. Ambition Institute also provides facilitator training and quality assurance to help us deliver the best possible development to participants. Ambition Institute, as the accredited licence holder, is also responsible for the assessment of all NPQ submissions.


You can find out more about Ambition Institute, the Alliance and its outcomes by visiting their website.

We work closely with Ambition Institute to ensure our offer meets
all the requirements and metrics as set out by the Department for Education in the NPQ Quality Framework and the NPQ Content and Assessment Framework.

This programme is designed to enable participants to increase their confidence and capability in the core skills and responsibilities of an effective school leader.

The course will empower participants to develop a strong network to support them as Headteachers. Participants will be assessed through a written assignment to ensure they have reached the qualification requirements, plus a viva interview to assess them against the more challenging Ambition bar.

The programme comprises a series of training sessions, along with pre and post-reading, a nine-day school placement and an in-school impact project.

 

OVERVIEW OF SESSIONS:

  • School self-evaluation and school improvement planning
  • School culture and vision
  • Operational management of school including finance and HR
  • Teaching, learning and curriculum
  • Pastoral leadership

 

Sessions will include six core areas:

  • Leadership skills for Headteachers
  • School self-evaluation and school improvement planning
  • School culture and vision
  • Operational management of school including finance and HR
  • Teaching, learning and curriculum
  • Pastoral leadership
  •  

The project element is in two parts; delegates must:

1) Lead a change programme at whole-school level, lasting at least two terms, to improve pupil progress and attainment.

2) Undertake a placement in a contrasting school (for example, by performance, pupil profile, geography) lasting at least nine working days.

This programme is ideal for: Deputy Heads aspiring to Headship, and Deputy, Assistant or Associate Headteachers

Duration and location: 6 full-day sessions over a 12-18 month period, from a central location.

 

Unfortunately due to the COVID19 pandemic TKAT will not be in a position to run new NPQH cohorts in the 2020 - 2021 academic year.

We plan to resume these in Autumn 2021.
