Leadership Apprenticeship and NPQ Pathways

Offered for the first time as a dual-award, school leaders can now access an accredited school leadership qualification funded through the apprenticeship levy.

Our Leader dual awards incorporate both the Level 5 Departmental/Operations Manager Apprenticeship and the DfE accredited National Professional Qualifications (NPQs) to provide outstanding leadership development underpinned by cross-sector learning and practice.

    • Drive sustainable improvement through focussed in-school activity
    • Gain access to cutting-edge theory, resource and delivery from thought leaders and leading practitioners from all sectors of the economy
    • Undertake a national qualification contextualised to your locality
    • Funded through your apprenticeship levy

What is the Apprenticeship Levy?

The levy is paid by large employers with a wage bill of over £3 million. These employers pay 0.5% of their total annual pay bill into the levy. Most state-maintained schools and multi-academy trusts pay into the levy.

The levy is designed to create long term sustainable funding for apprenticeships and to give employers more control to provide their staff with a range of training opportunities.

Apprenticeship funded training is designed for both new and existing staff members.

If your school is not a levy payer or has exhausted its levy funds, we may be able to source funding on your school's behalf.  Please contact us if you would like more information.
