An education offer for everyone

The Church of England is among 9 partner providers for the reformed National Professional Qualifications (NPQ) for aspiring education leaders, or those who want to develop in specialist areas, which launches in the autumn.

The National Church is joining with the Catholic Education Service to partner with the Government as part of the new frameworks for NPQs.

Nigel Genders, Chief Education Officer for the Church of England said:

"This is an expansive vision for the whole education sector, and we are pleased that the Government has recognised the strengths of our shared vision for children and adults to flourish, and we are enormously excited to be working together at a pivotal moment across the education sector.

"Together, the Catholic Church and Church of England run more than a third of all the country’s schools and play a particularly rich role in the wider education landscape.

"Our delivery of these qualifications will be across all parts of the country. We will be working with a fantastic range of delivery partners – Teaching School Hubs, Multi Academy Trusts and high performing schools – in each region, and we look forward to welcoming many thousands of teachers and leaders onto the suite of NPQ programmes in the coming years.

"And our offer is not just for our own schools, but for everyone, with a particular focus on ensuring that rural school leaders can access and benefit from the programmes. At a local level, this will mean exciting new partnerships between schools, MATs and other networks. At a national level, it will enable us to play our full role in investing heavily in the thing we know the evidence shows makes the biggest difference – our core purpose as leaders – leading a culture of teacher excellence."
