The final assessment for NPQH involves completing two tasks:
- A whole-school change programme in your own school over at least two term
- A placement lasting at least nine days in a contrasting school with the focus of designing an action plan to meet the placement school’s resourcing and capability needs
You will submit a 4,000 word write up of task 1 and 2,500 for task 2 once you have completed your face to face training. These will be assessed against the DfE assessment criteria.
Star Institute’s NPQH programme is designed around the six areas in the DfE’s Content and Assessment Framework. As such, each session you attend on the programme directly supports you to prepare for and successfully complete your final assessment.
Throughout the programme you will be encouraged to consider the final assessment and regularly reflect on what you have learnt, how you have planned and implemented your improvement project, ensuring you are well prepared for completing the write up for the final assessment.
