Applications for NPQH 2019-20 including LSR should be returned to the Consortium by 1pm 16/09/2019

Information Briefing Dates

To ensure practitioners are fully informed, a number of briefing sessions will be held across Wales and it is recommended that all practitioners considering application should attend. Wherever possible we recommend that Headteachers attend with the prospective candidate.
The NPQH is a national programme and as such each of the briefings will provide the same information so you can attend the session that best suits you in terms of location. There is no need to pre-register.
The details of all the briefing sessions across Wales are shown below.

The National Professional Qualification for Headship (NPQH) is mandatory for all teachers moving into their first headship post in Wales.
Should I apply for the NPQH? 
The NPQH is specifically for practitioners who are actively seeking headship as their next post. In order to be considered for the NPQH candidates must be:
qualified teachers, registered as teachers with the Education Workforce Council for Wales;
suitably experienced practitioners who intend becoming serving headteachers in the very near future. Headship is their next career step (acting headteachers who are not aspiring to a substantive headship post are not eligible to participate);
at a stage in their career where they are able to provide strong evidence to demonstrate significant experience of leadership at a whole school level and can demonstrate attainment against the Formal Leadership Standards (Professional standards for teaching and leadership)
willing to share learning and development with support officers and other colleagues, including examples and case studies of the experiences undertaken during their career that have prepared them for headship.
You should discuss your application and Leadership Standards Review (LSR) with your Headteacher who may wish to discuss it with the Challenge Adviser.
Where you have the agreement of your headteacher they sign and complete the application and return it to you.
You must forward your application and a completed LSR to the Consortium before 1pm 16/09/2019. The consortium arranges for the Endorsing Officer to consider the application and make a recommendation.
Applications must be submitted to your local Consortium.
