NPQ for Leading Behaviour and Culture (NPQLBC)

Our NPQ for Leading Behaviour and Culture is designed for teachers and leaders who have, or who aspire to have, responsibility for the behaviour and culture of a year group, phase, or whole school.

NPQs at the National Institute of Teaching are school-led: our organisation was founded by four leading Multi-Academy Trusts, and our programmes are designed and delivered with a focus on the realities of schools. Because teachers’ time is precious, our programmes are respectful of your time, and designed to have immediate impact on the pupils and colleagues in your school, as well as the colleagues and children you will work with in the future.
