National Professional Qualification for Leading Behaviour and Culture (NPQLBC)
We’re pleased to announce that we are partnering with education charity Ambition Institute to deliver the new NPQ for Leading Behaviour and Culture. In 12 months, you will gain expertise in how you can develop a culture of high expectations and good behaviour in your school.
With no project work and minimal time out of your school setting, the NPQLBC is designed to fit around your busy timetable.
To apply, you must be a teacher who has, or is aspiring to have, responsibilities for leading behaviour and/or supporting pupil wellbeing in your school.
DfE-funded scholarships are available for this NPQ for all those who meet the following criteria:
- Have, or are aspiring to have, responsibilities for leading the development for other teachers in their school
- Work in a state-funded school or organisations that offer 16-19 places in England
From September 2022, eligible organisations now include:
- Independent special schools
- Virtual schools (Local Authority run organisations that support the education of children in care)
- Hospital schools not already included in other categories of eligible organisations
- Young offender institutions
What you’ll learn
This programme follows the Department of Education’s National Professional Qualification (NPQ): Leading Behaviour and Culture Framework.
You will learn how to:
- Create a culture of high expectations across your school
- Support the development of a positive, predictable and safe environment for pupils
- Assist pupils with complex behavioural needs
- Nurture improvement through evidence-based professional development
- Put new approaches to leading behaviour and culture into practice in your school setting.
How you’ll learn
The content is delivered through blended learning. This includes a mix of real-time, interactive online sessions and self-guided modules you complete in your own time. The programme includes facilitator-led sessions with your peer group that focus on decision making.
Note: programme content is subject to change.
The assessment window starts at the end of the 12-month programme. During this time, you will be given an eight-day window to sit an ‘open book’ style assessment in which you respond to a short case study.
There are two assessment windows every year, and you can sit the assessment two times, if you need to.
You need to complete the course to qualify for the NPQ accreditation.
We will offer a live clinic in advance of the assessment window to support you.
