Event Details



We are delighted to announce a partnership between Leadership CoLab based at University College London - Institute of Education and the International Leadership Academy (ILA) to bring the ILA International Professional Qualification in Middle Leadership programme to our international school community (iNPQML).


The ILA iNPQML is globally unique as it brings the National Professional Qualification (NPQ) from UCL, as an accredited provider with the Department for Education in the UK, to an extensive leadership programme that firmly weaves the ‘i’ for international throughout. This is a 4-day prestigious programme and certification aimed at new and aspiring middle leaders in international schools.


Run by experienced ILA facilitators that are successful existing international school leaders, this programme is quality assured, externally certified and designed specifically for international schools. It is underpinned by solid research and evidence-based practice in leadership as we strive to develop international leadership for international schools. 


Who is this course is for?

This programme is for:

Those who are, or are aspiring to become, a middle leader with responsibility for leading a team e.g. a phase leader, a curriculum area leader, a pastoral services leader, a subject leader, a special educational needs co-ordinator (SENCO), or a head of department. This includes those who are, or are aspiring to be, a middle leader with cross-school responsibilities e.g. a Specialist Leader of Education (SLE).


Curriculum Framework

The curriculum framework is built around six content areas and seven leadership behaviours, all of which are common to each level of iNPQ, enabling leaders to develop the depth and breadth of knowledge and experience progressively through the levels:


The six content areas set out what a leader should know or be able to do:

•            Managing Resources and Risks

•            Teaching and Curriculum Excellence

•            Strategy and Improvement         

•            Leading with Impact

•            Working in Partnership 

•            Increasing Capability


The seven leadership behaviours focus on how the best leaders operate:

•            Commitment

•            Collaboration

•            Resilience

•            Personal Drive

•            Awareness

•            Respect

•            Integrity            


Programme Structure

In addition to the 4 extended day face-to-face (F2F) sessions totaling 30 hours delivery, the iNPQML programme follows a blended learning format. This consists of workplace learning and practice activities, peer and facilitated learning, reading, structured reflection, online learning and a 360-diagnostic assessment. There is an evening dinner during the first block of delivery where participants will have the opportunity to work together, consider research evidence and extend their professional network and relationships.
