Why choose NASBTT’s NPQLTD?

Working in close collaboration with the curriculum team at TDT, NASBTT has contextualised the learning so that it can be applied to the ITT sector in meaningful ways for ITT colleagues.

The core content of the NPQLTD will be the same as for any other delegate on any of the TDT’s NPQLTD programmes; therefore, you won’t miss out on any of the rich learning that has been developed by TDT and will attain exactly the same qualification at the end of the programme.

Undertaking this qualification through NASBTT will allow you to work alongside a cohort of ITT professionals, contextualise the learning to the ITT sector and share and build upon the extensive ITT expertise that exists within our membership.
