The L.E.A.D. Teaching School Alliances are dynamic partnerships and networks of schools, which are committed to working collaboratively on a local, national and international basis.  They work together to harness, nurture and share the specific skills and attributes required to teach and lead in schools.

The teachers and leaders in our alliance schools are committed to ensuring that every child feels encouraged and empowered to achieve and progress.

Leadership Curriculum Qualifications

The L.E.A.D. Academy Trust is licensed by the National College for Teaching & Leadership to provide the leadership curriculum throughout the East Midlands.

Our new range of national qualifications and flexible study modules support leaders at every stage of their career. The curriculum is structured around three levels, which reflect the different needs and challenges that leaders face as they take on new roles and responsibilities.

Each level offers a choice of modules.  These may be combined to pursue a qualification or studied on their own as a stand-alone course.  Options can be chosen at any level of the curriculum to match experience, development and career aspirations.

The application window is currently open, follow the links below for further details:

Our NPQ application window for Autumn 2020 is now closed.   

We are now accepting NPQ applications for our Spring 2021 intake.


National Professional Qualification for Middle Leaders (NPQML)
