TELA are one of only 40 national providers for NPQs

As an NPQ provider we aim to provide professional, experienced support to guide you on your NPQ journey with experienced Heads of schools, local and national leaders in education, with a view to strengthen your leadership skills.

We have a successful record of delivering NPQs in the East Midlands, delivering high quality leadership qualifications in Primary, Secondary and Special Education.


Delivering leadership training based around local priorities

NPQML, NPQSL and NPQH all have modules based on local priorities such as white working class boys and leadership in a faith school. Delivered by a mix of school leaders, NLEs, LLEs and SLEs through blended learning.



TELA members receive a 30% discount on all NPQs.

Our courses are competitively costed to enable all schools to access high quality leadership training. 

Scholarship funding is available for delegates working in a category 5 or 6 area, and those working in MATs or dioceses which cover those areas.
