NPQ for Leading Teacher Development

The NPQ for Leading Teacher Development is a new programme to support those leading other teachers' development. 

Evidence suggests that the most powerful lever for pupil outcomes can be the focus of leaders on the professional development of their staff (Robinson 2009). 

Those in this role need to have expertise across several specialist areas related to their role (eg designing professional development) and approaches that enable their school to keep improving (eg implementation) through working with their colleagues.

 This programme is a codification of essential knowledge, skills and concepts that underpin successful leadership of teacher development. It sets out what those leading teacher development should know and can do within the specialist areas related to their role and how to put new approaches into practice.
