This is an uploaded version of my very hard work and dedication to the NPQSL course. One thing I found difficult when doing the project, was not being able to see the finished format and what was expected. After lots of advice, meetings and networking I finished the NPQSL assignment and passed with flying colours. I’m uploaded this to share, as I really wished that I had an example of the combined assignment to look at as it would have prevented a lot of stress. But passing with flying colours was very rewarding and now I am willing to share mine with you, to make it that little less stressful!
The assignment was uploaded in March 2016 and received my feedback in August 2016. I have also uploaded the feedback from the first page, to show that all 9 competencies were passed to the required standard. The written feedback was incredibly positive and included many strengths.
I have included the action plan, proforma and appendicies – however, I have blanked out certain names and school details.
This assignment took me many days and many hours to complete, so I hope you find this useful and that it reduces your workload/gives you a clearer direction.
Please leave feedback :)
