National Professional Qualification for Leading Literacy

We are now taking registrations of interest for spring 2024.

We will be running this NPQ with Little Sutton English Hub.

Poor literacy skills are a significant barrier for young people in progressing in all aspects of their education. In 12 months, participants will become an expert in literacy and leadership and enable young people to benefit from the curriculum to improve their chances of success. Those doing the training will learn:

> Gain a NPQ in Leading Literacy
> Access the latest evidence-based learning in literacy development
> Support colleagues to champion literacy
> At a time and pace that suits their existing timetable.
