Answered on: 21 January 2015

a) In financial year 2009/10 1466 people commenced the National Professional Qualification for Headship (NPQH) programme.

b) In financial year 2010/11 1464 people commenced the NPQH programme.

c) In financial year 2011/12 1981 people commenced the NPQH programme.

There are two NPQH application rounds per annum.

NPQH has a learning journey of 12-18 months and therefore participants commencing during one financial year may not present for the final assessment for a further two financial years.
