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 Senior Leadership programme to our international school community.


The ILA iNPQSL is unique as it brings the National Professional Qualification (NPQ) from UCL as an accredited provider with the Department for Education in the UK in combination with an international school bias that runs throughout the programme to firmly weave the ‘I’ for international throughout.  This is a prestigious programme and certification aimed at new and aspiring senior leaders in international schools.


Run by experienced 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 senior leader with cross-school responsibilities e.g. an experienced middle leader, a deputy head teacher, an assistant head teacher, or other senior staff e.g. a Director of Curriculum.

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:

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

•            Commitment

•            Collaboration

•            Resilience

•            Personal Drive

•            Awareness

•            Respect

•            Integrity

In addition to the 5 extended day face-to-face (F2F) sessions detailed below, totalling 36 hours of face-to-face delivery, the iNPQSL 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 each block of delivery where participants will have the opportunity to work together, consider research evidence and extend their professional network and relationships.
