The Downland Alliance  is proud to be working with Outstanding Leaders Partnership to deliver the National Professional Qualifications (NPQs) to colleagues in schools across West Berkshire.  

The frameworks for the NPQs have been updated and refreshed from Autumn 2021 and draw from the very latest evidence and research into pedagogy, behaviour, curriculum and more.

The 6 NPQs currently available are:
