National Professional Qualification for Headship

How to register for NPQH

Please read the following information and then proceed to the booking form page using the link below.

Once you have submitted the booking form successfully, you will receive a verification email, to the email address you have provided on the booking form. This is confirmation that your booking has been received and you are provisionally allocated your chosen assessment window. Please do not book twice if you have entered the incorrect information. You need to email EMLC to change this. Please be aware emails from us may go to your Junk folder.

The assessment windows will typically be within, 6, 9, 12 and 18 months of your Induction Day


Please complete all fields on the booking form taking particular care in the selection of your preferred date for submission of your written tasks and attendance at the face to face event. Please ensure you notify EMLC of any changes to your details such as email address. Please do not book twice. Please ensure that you notify your licensee of your provisional assessment window.


A minimum of 5 weeks before your assessment date EMLC will confirm the date your documentation will be required. You will be asked to confirm that you still intend to submit your school improvement tasks and you will be required to confirm this with your licensee, so that they can verify you have completed all the Essential and Elective Modules for the qualification. You must respond to this request to ensure that your school improvement tasks will be assessed in this window.


You will need to upload your completed documentation electronically to your own area on the emlc website by the specified date. EMLC will confirm receipt of your documentation

If you have any further queries regarding final assessment please contact the NPQH team at EMLC on, or phone us on 01234 880130.
