Dual Leader Awards

With DfE scholarship funding for NPQs currently suspended, schools are looking for alternate ways to fund the continuous professional development of their staff.

Funded by the apprenticeship levy, the Leaders Apprenticeship with NPQML or NPQSL is a dual award offering leaders, or aspiring leaders, a unique opportunity to benefit from cross-sector learning and practice alongside a DfE-accredited leadership qualification. olp-bnp-logos
