Become an SSAT approved middle leadership delivery partner

There are two middle leadership training opportunities available to you as a delivery partner.

Department for Education (DfE) National Professional Qualification for Middle Leadership (NPQML)

A nationally recognised qualification, the NPQML supports the professional development of your aspiring and current middle leaders.

The course of 12 modules develops the skills, knowledge, and behaviours that your cohort need to be high-performing middle leaders in your school and across your trust.

The window to apply to become an NPQML delivery partner with SSAT is now closed. We continue to support existing delivery partners and participants.

SSAT Middle Leadership Modules

If flexibility and a bespoke approach is what you are looking for you can deliver all or some of the 11 SSAT Middle Leadership modules.

These modules focus on the essentials that transcend good middle leadership in all settings, whilst allowing for contextualisation and particularisation.

This is ideal for groups of middle leaders who have specified areas of development that need to be addressed quickly. The modules are designed to support middle leaders to develop their practice, including immediately applicable strategies for improvement.
