What you’ll learn

The programme follows the Department for Education’s National Professional Qualification: Leading Behaviour and Culture Framework.

  • Create a culture of high expectations across your school
  • Support the development of a positive, predictable and safe environment for pupils
  • Assist pupils with complex behavioural needs
  • Nurture improvement through evidence-based professional development
  • Put new approaches to leading behaviour and culture into practice in your school setting.

Note: programme content is subject to change.

  • Become an expert – no matter what your ultimate career goal, this programme offers continuous professional development and a chance to develop specific expertise with tailored feedback and support.
  • Drive meaningful change – develop your knowledge in leading behaviour and culture and apply it in practice across your school to engage and motivate staff and pupils and reduce disruption in classrooms.
  • Create a positive school culture – learn to think beyond managing individual classrooms and develop school-wide systems and processes to support pupils and get the best out of them.
  • Train to your timetable – this programme is designed to fit around your busy teaching role and much of the work can be completed in bite-size chunks around your existing schedule.
  • Build your network – you will complete this programme alongside other teachers working in similar school environments. This gives you a chance to share your experiences and build a valuable support network.
  • Improve pupil outcomes – pupils are more likely to thrive in a positive and encouraging school environment driven by model behaviour and a consistent approach to rules and rewards.
  • Build a positive culture – investing in your teachers’ development will make them feel supported and more satisfied in their work. This will filter down to the classroom, creating happier, more motivated pupils.
  • Highly flexible delivery – our new NPQs are designed to fit around your teachers’ existing working timetables and are delivered in short, sharp bursts of learning. Your participants can complete weekly, online units, at a time that suits them.
  • Create a common knowledge base – all of Ambition Institute’s NPQs are aligned. Teachers and leaders who complete them share a common language and framework to drive behavioural and cultural change across your school.
  • Share knowledge – participants will be learning alongside other teachers whose contexts are similar, facilitated by experienced trainers who know and understand your needs.
