We’re pleased to announce that we are partnering with education charity Ambition Institute to deliver the new NPQ in Leading Literacy.

Poor literacy skills are a significant barrier for young people in progressing in all aspects of their education.

In 12 months, participants will become an expert in literacy and leadership and enable young people to benefit from the curriculum to improve their chances of success.

Those doing the training will learn:

  • Gain a National Profession Qualification (NPQ) in Leading Literacy.
  • Access the latest evidence-based learning in literacy development.
  • Support colleagues to champion literacy.
  • At a time and pace that suits their existing timetable.


To apply, you must be leading, or aspiring to lead, literacy in any phase of education. For example, you might be a head of literacy or literacy coordinator at your school or multi academy trust.
