“Current research and evidence underpin all elements of the programmes, content related reading, inter-sessional activities and face to face days. QTL leaders engage in a continuous process of review to ensure research and evidence are current.”
“96% of respondents said they would recommend their chosen programme to a colleague. 98% said they would recommend the provider QTL - August 2018 review”
“I cannot think of anything that would improve the quality, content or method of delivery. QTL's NPQH programme hit every button and I would recommend it to all who aspire to headship.”
“The biggest benefit of the course was the days in session. We discussed a wide variety of topics and had the opportunity to share best practice. I learned a range of different leadership strategies and was able to use these within my school work.”
“This programme has enabled me to develop as a leader and understand the roles that involves. It has helped me to identify my own leadership styles and how to use this to hold others to account. I am now confident in leading others in a coaching role. ”
“I have learnt an incredible amount on the face to face sessions. Learning different styles of leadership has made me re-evaluate my current model. I no longer ‘assume’ what we do is the best way of doing things”
“This is the best CPD I have ever received, a completely cohesive programme that really tackled the key issues of leadership - Feb 2018”
“I am gaining so much from this course especially my ability to reflect on different practices. Everything we have read and discussed has been very relevant to the Headteacher role and our projects - Jan 2018”
“There were some excellent discussions, lots of helpful advice, and a clear picture of how we move forward. I left all the sessions feeling more confident about both my course, and my role within my school - Jan 2018”
“My home school went from RI to Outstanding. In my new position as Headteacher the programme provided me with the confidence to create a vision and start to move my school out of RI.”
“The course enabled me to use my learning in everyday leadership tasks. I managed to test theories and learn from peers in an open and trustful environment. With each face to face I grew in belief and transferred that to my workplace.”
“The NPQEL has equipped me with the confidence to lead and successfully impact beyond my own school. Harnessing a broad network of partnerships for meaningful collaboration and entrepreneurial strategic development”
