NPQSL provides recognition of leadership development and professional achievement for senior leaders. Candidates access high-quality learning materials and accounts of practice from outstanding leaders. Senior leaders reflect on their own leadership through discussion and debate with peers and put theory into practice. The qualification has been designed to stimulate and challenge thinking, build knowledge, skills and expertise, promote change and improvement in leadership behaviours, capability and capacity.

The qualification has a flexible, modular structure that combines core modules with the freedom to specialise and to develop candidate’s own professional areas of interest through the choice of elective modules.
