Over the coming weeks, the Teaching School Hub will share an NPQ spotlight with colleagues across the region, highlighting the specific features of one of our NPQ suite of qualifications and how the programme might benefit colleagues looking to develop their practice as teachers or leaders in their setting.
The NPQ Leading Behaviour and Culture is one of a kind for many reasons; an NPQ open to both teaching and non teaching staff, this programme takes colleagues through a comprehensive study of how to develop a strong culture in their school setting. With course units that explore the relationship between behaviour and teaching, complex behavioural needs, staff and student wellbeing and most importantly, a consideration of the process of implementation in response to persistent challenges that colleagues face every day, the programme aims to equip participants with the knowledge they need to apply systems to support staff and pupils to succeed.
The programme takes a hybrid approach, opening with an in-person conference where the cohort can meet as a network, before embarking on flexible self-study modules and online clinics delivered by our Expert Visiting Fellows, a team of established school and system leaders who understand the specific challenges faced by North and North East Lincolnshire coastal, rural and smaller schools.
This programme would be ideal for any teaching or non teaching member of staff, keen to develop further with a recognised qualification within the sector to develop their knowledge and expertise in a specialist area such as behaviour, wellbeing and school culture.
The NPQ Leading Behaviour and Culture has a fully-funded scholarship available, with an additional targeted support payment of £200 to smaller schools (please check here for school eligibility). Closing date for applications to join our next cohort is Thursday 12th January 2023, but we advise early applications wherever possible to reserve places.
