Workshop: An introduction to the NPQ programmes and evidence based learning.

A taster session for the National Professional Qualifications aimed at aspiring and current middle and senior leaders. You will explore the outcomes of the NPQML and NPQSL programmes and experience an example of programme content – Evidence based learning.

This introduction to the NPQ programmes will look at why some teachers have far more impact on students’ learning than others and how they adopt evidencebased teaching strategies; monitor their impact on students’ learning and adjust their approaches accordingly –  actively seeking to improve their own teaching.
