Coronavirus (COVID-19) – information for NPQ members
We know right now you will be focused on supporting your pupils and school through this difficult time.
That is the right priority. Thank you for all you’re doing.
Our NPQs include our Middle Leader, Senior Leader and Headship programmes. We will continue to accept new applications for these programmes. If you’re already enrolled, rest assured that your programme will continue. But we’re making some changes to stay in line with the latest advice and keep you supported through this challenging time.
We will re-plan all in-person training events. Where possible, the topics covered will be delivered virtually after Easter. We anticipate that our May and July events will take place online, and would ask you to hold those dates in your diary for the time being.
All scheduled one-to-one and peer learning group calls will take place as planned.
We have been proactively preparing to deliver our support remotely. After the Easter break, we will be moving more of our programme online, with content and curricula designed specifically for online learning.
We’ll plan these so they work for the new arrangements you will inevitably be working in. And you’ll be able to take part in learning from a location that works for them.
You will have many urgent priorities now. But if your school closes and you are able, you will be able to start your draft write-up, using the assessment tab on MyTeachFirst to support you. Please get in touch if you need additional help with this.
This is an interim arrangement until further notice. We’re sorry for the disruption but are confident we’ll be able to keep supporting you through our new approach. We know it’s a difficult time, so want to be there when and how it’s helpful.
We will be in touch in the coming weeks with further details.
