The International Professional Qualification for Headship (iNPQH) is a prestigious programme and certification aimed at new and aspiring head teachers in international schools. It brings the UK recognised National Professional Qualification (NPQ) through an accredited provider with the Department for Education into an extensive leadership programme that firmly weaves the ‘I’ for international throughout.


Run by experienced ILA facilitators that are successful existing school leaders, this programme is quality assured and externally certified. It is underpinned by solid research and evidence-based practice in leadership as we strive to develop international school leadership for international schools. Develop the skills, knowledge and behaviours that you need to be a high-performing headteacher.


Who can apply?

You should be, or aspire to be, a headteacher or head of school.


What’s involved

Study can last between 2 academic terms and 18 months.

During this time you will:

  • develop knowledge and skills across 6 content areas, which set out what an effective headteacher or head of school should know and be able to do
  • have the opportunity to develop up to 7 important leadership behaviours, which set out how an effective leader should operate
  • undertake a placement at a school, in a different context from your own, for a minimum of 9 days (this contrasting school placement will be agreed with the course leaders and can be in the UK or another country)
  • complete a final assessment that evaluates your capability against the knowledge and skills set out in the 6 content areas


Content areas

The 6 content areas across which you will develop your senior leadership knowledge and skills are:

  • strategy and improvement
  • teaching and curriculum excellence
  • leading with impact
  • working in partnership
  • managing resources and risks
  • increasing capability
  • Leadership behaviours


The 7 leadership behaviours that you will have the opportunity to develop are:

  • commitment
  • collaboration
  • personal drive
  • resilience
  • awareness
  • integrity
  • respect


Final assessment

You will:

  • lead a school change programme, lasting at least 2 terms, to improve pupil progress and attainment
  • design an action plan to meet your placement school’s resourcing and capability needs
  • Through these 2 projects, you will need to demonstrate your competence through an assessment linked to the knowledge and skills set out in the 6 content areas.
