The final assessment for NPQEL involves completing two tasks:
- Designing a sustainable business development strategy for your organisation
- Leading an improvement project across several (at least two) schools
You will submit a 4,000 word write up of each task once you have completed your face to face training. These will be assessed against the DfE assessment criteria.
Star Institute’s NPQEL 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.
Star Institute are also the assessment body for your NPQEL, we have designed the process to be easily understandable and to support you to be successful in the qualification.
