---   Standalone Modules   ---

We are delighted to offer standalone modules from the NPQSL  leadership programme. Please click here for details of our four 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)
  • 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

To book please use the Stand-alone Module Registration Form below.
