TELA Learners First NPQSL Senior Leader

Delivered by TELA with licensees Learners First, NPQSL has been developed for senior leaders who are leading beyond a team within a school. The qualification has a flexible, modular structure that combines essential modules ‘Succeeding in Senior Leadership’ and ‘Closing the Gap’ with the opportunity for participants to select from a range of elective modules to develop and enhance their practice and skills. Importantly, the NPQSL will require participants to undertake authentic school improvement work that relates to their own leadership role and the school’s improvement priorities.
