The Professional Alliance Birmingham

The Professional Alliance Birmingham (TPAB) provides support for current participants on the National Professional Qualification for Headship (NPQH) and the National Professional Qualification for Senior Leadership (NPQSL). The Licence awarded to TPAB to deliver programmes on behalf of the National College for Teaching & Leadership (NCTL) is now managed by Colmore Partnership Teaching School Alliance.


Colmore Partnership Teaching School Alliance is a member of the Association of Central Teaching Schools (ACTS). Whilst TPAB will not be offering any new courses, you can still work with Colmore Teaching School Alliance to gain the National Professional Qualifications (NPQs) via their new partnership with ACTS.
