Welcome to Thomas Estley Learning Alliance

We are a career long training provider from Initial Teacher Training all the way through to National Professional Qualifications.

As a licenced NPQ provider we are able to provide the NPQML, NPQSL and NPQH across Leicestershire and the East Midlands using our experienced delivery team and hub model. We provide modules in all of our NPQs which address regional priorities such as white working class boys and leadership within faith schools.
