ACTS NPQ Alliance

The Association of Central Teaching Schools has joined a national alliance through Ambition School Leadership so that it can deliver the NPQ programmes. The national alliance formed by Ambition School Leadership brings together some of the largest and most successful MATs – including Ark, Outwood Grange, Oasis Community Learning along with other regional and national groups and teaching school alliances such as ACTS.

The ACTS NPQ Alliance offers scale and diversity across the West Midlands through 9 Teaching School Alliances that cover a variety of settings from Early Years provision through to post 16 providers and special school. National Leaders of Education, Specialist Leaders of Education and Senior Leaders, will lead facilitation through relevant and up to date course materials.
