    Hang on a minute ... you’re all heading fir the dizzy heights of middle management and you can’t write your own final assessment? Says it all really.

    Everytime a poster asks for an exemplar for a NPQML. SL, etc there are always people who criticise by saying 'How can you expect a leader, if you can't write a final assessment?'
    It's a bit petty really. Seeing an exemplar is really useful and it's hardly cheating! I wonder if a bit of professional jealousy comes into play?

    No. People taking this qualification are evidencing their ability to lead others to promote student progress. They need to write about what they have done and should be capable of putting their own words on paper.

    You’re right.

    Reflecting on personal experience will make you a better leader. Borrowing someone else’s won’t.

    This is why some of these courses are criticised as being poor preparation. I found Master’s better because, in a small group, any duplication/ copying/ plagiarism was easily spotted. The personal reflection aspect was extremely useful.

    I’ve got a cupboard full of these qualifications, so jealousy doesn’t come into play. But I get your point @BoringGiant

    Why doesn't the course provide exemplars? Given the repeated requests on here it must be necessary.

    No sorry I’ve got this qualification. It would never have occurred to me to ask to see anyone else’s final assessment. It should be completely individual and dependent on the candidate’s experience and the context in which they work. The main problem with middle management in my experience is people being promoted beyond their competence. Would I want to be ‘led’ by someone who can’t write their own assessment? Would you?

    I never suggested people shouldn’t reflect on their own personal experience, just that seeing a completed assessment is useful. Writing an assessment document without using an exemplar, does not correlate to making you a good leader. Using a resource as guidance to improve your own work, is a strength. Most leaders do this when writing policies/frameworks/Development plans etc

    is anyone able to share an exemplar of the new format of the NPQML? I am struggling to envisage what this will look like - in terms of the action plan and write up. Any guidance would be very helpful. Thank you

    Hi are you able to share the NPQML exemplar with me? is this the new version of the NPQML started in 2018? as the previous one was written and planned differently?

    Perhaps you should demand a refund of your course fee if they haven't explained this well enough?

    The NPQSL has a similar kind of final assessment/reflective piece. I can kind of see the need to have a look at an exemplar and as the content is very personal to you and needs to be evidenced, wholesale copying would be difficult. However, there would be nothing stopping someone from copying the work of another and passing it off as their own if no-one is really checking it.
