21 January 2015
National Professional Qualification for Headship (NPQH) is no longer mandatory. 394 people applied for the NPQH in the first half of the financial year 2014/15.
Evidence from previous NPQH application rounds demonstrates fewer people apply for NPQH in the first round of applications than the second round, as the commencement date for the second round aligns with the start of a new academic year.
