ACTS NPQ Alliance

The Association of Central Teaching Schools has joined a national alliance through Ambition Institute so that it can deliver the NPQ programmes. The national alliance formed by Ambition Institute 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 and Schools that cover a variety of settings from Early Years provision through to post 16 providers, grammar schools  and a special school. National Leaders of Education, Specialist Leaders of Education and Senior Leaders, will lead facilitation through relevant and up to date course materials. Support and guidance on the assessment process forms part of the programmes with additional assessment support available throughout the programmes.

We are now in our third year of delivering our NPQ programmes and are working with over 160 delegates from all across the region and beyond. Our prices are highly competitive and are regularly reviewed to ensure excellent value for money.

Applicants can apply through the links on this page for our 2019/20 programmes. For more information, please contact Ali Fisher at the Colmore Partnership TSA on 0121 675 8766 or email Alifisher@cptsa.co.uk
