Why this programme?
Ambition Institute has designed this ground-breaking new NPQ to help you develop the knowledge and expertise to lead teacher development at your school.
The programme uses the latest evidence-based learning and shows you how to put your findings into practice in your school setting. You will train alongside other teachers with similar responsibilities.
The new and reformed NPQs have been developed as a complete series, sharing a common language. This means you can have confidence that all the educators in your school are building and developing their knowledge from the same evidence-based framework.
Ambition Institute knows that schools’ and trusts’ needs vary. So its programmes are designed with flexibility in mind and can be completed at a time that suits you best and fits in with your existing role. Through Steplab, the innovative personal development platform built for teachers, by teachers, you will have access to your modules and practice activities to help you get better faster.
