Covid Recovery

The school year 2020/21 will be substantially affected by the impact of the coronavirus outbreak.  All Minster Teaching School Alliance work will be flexible and adapt to the changing situation. This will include CPD events being hosted online in the first instance. We will endeavour to respond to need and keep you informed of arrangements throughout the year as we adapt to the situation, at the same time as continuing to support school improvement.


Our Teaching School alliance is committed to developing future leaders that are highly effective in what they do. There are a number of opportunities to provide professional development for leaders. 

National Professional Qualification for Senior Leadership - 2020-21 

Delivered in partnership with Leadership East, the National Professional Qualification for Senior Leadership (NPQSL) is a qualification that provides national recognition of your leadership development and professional achievement and will give you the opportunity to develop the skills, knowledge and confidence you need to be a highly effective senior leader.  You can control the pace and focus of your study by completing the work in a timeframe that suits you, with the freedom to specialise and develop your own professional areas of interest.
 

Funding Information:

There has been high demand from teachers and school leaders to access NPQ scholarships in recent months. As a result, access to Department for Education (DfE) scholarships for new applicants for NPQs is currently suspended.

Therefore, unfortunately, DfE funding is currently not available for any of the NPQ programmes.

We will inform all applicants, and update our website, should the status of DfE funding change in the future.


Please note: Applications are still open for 2020-21, but it is important for schools to be aware there will be a cost of £1,200 per person for anyone wishing to book a place.  

Email Trish O'Malley p.omalley@minster.notts.sch.uk for further information or to request online registration instructions.

Further details for this programme can be found via the Leadership East website.
