NPQ Programmes


Parbold Douglas CE Academy is delighted to be an NPQ Delivery Partner with the Church of England Education Office and Catholic Education Service, delivering on the new suite of National Professional Qualifications (NPQs). 


We work alongside our friends at Chorley St James' CE Primary School and Embrace Teaching School Hub to deliver the National Professional Qualification for Leading Teacher Development (NPQLTD) to teachers and leaders across the North West. This is a fantastic opportunity for our school to share its teacher development expertise. 


Our first cohort began in February 2022 and our second commenced in February 2023. The programme is fully funded, making it FREE to teachers and leaders from all state-funded schools in England. 


If you have any questions, or are interested in applying for a place, please get in touch with Mr Coxhead via the school office or visit the Church of England Foundation for Educational Leadership website. 


We are also delighted to be working alongside other Delivery Partners across the North West to signpost and provide information about the other NPQ programmes on offer:


NPQEL (Executive Leadership)

NPQH (Headship)

NPQSL (Senior Leadership)

NPQLT (Leading Teaching)

NPQLBC (Leading Behaviour and Culture)
