Ealing Learning Partnership

National professional qualifications (NPQs)

The new NPQs build on the evidence and expert advice already established in the new core content framework for Initial Teacher Training, and the Early Career Framework (ECF).

The NPQ frameworks sets out the things that participants should know and be able to do after completing an NPQ. They reflect the Teachers’ standards and Headteachers’ standards to ensure coherency with the requirements already used by the teaching profession.

Teach West London, are working in partnership with UCL to deliver the following NPQ programmes for Ealing schools:
