A new and exciting opportunity to embark on a leadership programme that has national qualifications, cutting edge content and inspirational facilitators

LSSW is delighted to offer a new and innovative programme opportunity for aspiring and existing middle leaders, NPQML PLUS. It is a joint venture between LSSW, a DfE National Licence Provider, and Skills Training UK, a national Apprenticeships training provider. This new qualification will enable schools to fund the programme through their Apprenticeship Levy which is currently top-sliced from their budgets, or, for smaller schools, through the Education and Skills Funding Agency. This new programme combines the National Professional Qualification in Middle Leadership (NPQML) with a Chartered Management Institute (CMI) Level 3 Diploma in First Line Management.
All details can be found under the NPQML PLUS tab.
