The Tame River Teaching and Curriculum Institute works in partnership with the University College London (UCL) and the East Manchester Teaching School Hub (EMTSH).
UCL is a DfE-accredited provider of the Specialist and Leadership National Professional Qualifications. Our TCI is a key player in the East Manchester Teaching School Hub who is the delivery partner for UCL in hosting the NPQs. Some of our Institute leaders are national trainers and facilitators for the NPQ programmes, including the National Professional Qualification for Headship.
We know that great school leadership is one of the main driving factors in changing young people’s lives.
The training programmes offered by our Trust, the EMTSH and the UCL’s Centre for Educational Leadership are the specialist and leadership NPQs. Each year, teachers and leaders in our Trust are eligible and/ or recommended to apply through the Trust to undertake one of the National Professional Qualifications.
If their application is approved, the Trust will ensure a portion of time is allotted to allow our colleagues to complete their training.

Mike Eade – NPQ Facilitator
My role is an NPQ facilitator for the NPQ for Leading Teaching as part of the East Manchester Teaching School Hub. I work with teachers and curriculum leaders across East Manchester who are leading change initiatives in their own schools.
I have been facilitating for the NPQ since 2021 and have taken 2 cohorts through their Leading Teaching NPQ. As part of the role I have delivered face to face and online seminars where I have led training, and facilitated peer learning groups where participants plan and deliver a school improvement project in their own schools. This is one of the responsibilities I value the most in my current role.
I am required to understand educational research as I deliver the NPQ, and implementation science as I lead on how to plan, deliver and evaluate effective change in a school. I believe this work benefits the students across a far wider area than just my own classroom.
