Aspiring Executive Principals (NPQEL)

The National Professional Qualification for Executive Leadership (NPQEL) is a new national qualification for anyone aspiring lead more than one school.

The Aspiring Leaders approach uses the Harris Federation Multi Academy Trust (MAT) as a case study for successful leadership across a group of schools. The programme draws on the leadership expertise of Harris executive leaders and directors from other successful MATs from across the country, providing an exciting opportunity to learn from some of the most experienced and successful MAT leaders in the UK.

This is a practical, hands-on programme that is led by the Harris Federation CEO, Sir Daniel Moynihan and Executive Principals, each with outstanding track-records of leading multiple schools successfully. Leaders will share their experiences of executive leadership explaining the key challenges involved in leading multiple schools. They will show case different approaches to maximising resources and maintaining collaboration between schools to ensure that all schools improve student outcomes effectively under one executive leader.

Who is the programme for?
