National Professional Qualifications

These frameworks are for the reformed national professional qualifications (NPQ) that will be available from September 2021. They have been developed in consultation with an expert advisory group from across the education system.

The changes to NPQs build on the evidence and expert advice already established in the new core content framework for Initial Teacher Training, and the Early Career Framework (ECF).

The content frameworks set out the things that participants should know and be able to do after completing an NPQ. Providers of NPQs are expected to use these frameworks to design their course.

They reflect the Teachers’ standards and Headteachers’ standards to ensure coherency with the requirements already used by the teaching profession.
