The BTSA is proud to be working with Outstanding Leaders Partnership/Best Practice Network to deliver the National Professional Qualifications (NPQs) to colleagues across Essex.

The reformed NPQs offer teachers and leaders clearer development opportunities and career progression. The reformed qualifications aim to:

  • help teachers hone and develop the skills they already have, helping them to become more effective leaders inside and outside the classroom and improving overall teaching quality
  • retain high-calibre teachers by offering clearer development opportunities and career progression
