National professional qualification for middle leadership (npqml)

Odyssey (working in conjunction with Adfecto and Sir Thomas Rich's Teaching School Alliance) is one of only 44 nationally accredited providers of the NPQ qualifications.

NPQML is suitable for middle leaders with responsibility for a team including key stage leaders, subject leaders, heads of department or pastoral leads. The nationally accredited programme will be delivered predominantly through 5 face to face days.  All delegates will be assigned a personal mentor to support them on a one-to-one basis through their independent assessment task.  An online portal provides further learning opportunities. 

As part of the programme, all delegates have the opportunity to visit another school in their chosen sector -  Primary, Secondary or Grammar.

Why Choose Odyssey?
Rating us an average of 9.8 out of 10, current delegates describe our NPQ courses as “informative, insightful and inspiring”.
