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.

We shall now be taking a short break from running further NPQSL courses under the current model. National Professional Qualifications are under review by NCTL – as soon as we have further information, you will find it here on our homepage. 

In the meantime, have a look at our standalone courses which run through spring and summer terms 2017. See below. 

Closing the gap - Rapidly Raising Reading

We are delighted to announce that this new course will be run based upon NCTL's Closing the Gap module, with an emphasis on leading change to narrow the difference in reading in key stage 2. Schools who are part of the Birmingham Education Partnership can find further details and register interest by clicking here.

Standalone Modules

We are pleased to offer standalone modules from the NPQSL leadership programme. Please click here for details of our three standalone courses.  

Leaders can use modules in a flexible way to meet needs, irrespective of their current role. They can be used by: 

  • Leaders who are not on a full leadership programme

  • Aspiring leaders before engaging on a full leadership programme, and the experience ‘banked’ towards module requirements (conditions apply). Please contact us if you are interested in this option.

  • Leaders who want to gain experience in an unfamiliar area

  • Aspiring leaders without formal leadership roles to extend their expertise and to support career progression to a qualification or new role
