Our NPQEYL programme has been designed with existing or aspiring early years leaders in mind. It is a qualification delivered flexibly and offers a blend of face to face, online and self-directed study over an 18-month period.

NPQEYL modules cover a wide range of themes including:

      * Organisational Management                                              * Culture

      * Child Development and Curriculum                                  * Communication, Language and Literacy

      * Personal, Social and Emotional Development                  * Assessment

      * Additional Special Educational Needs and Disabilities    * Professional Development

      * Working in Partnership                                                      * Implementation

The need for a large project has been removed from the reformed suite of NPQs and the assessment process streamlined to take into account the workload of busy Early Years Leaders.

The table below gives an idea of the time commitment required over the course of the programme:
