NPQ Scholarship Funding

Are you eligible for a fully-funded place?

DfE scholarships are currently on pause. This doesn’t mean that there won’t be any available again, but at the moment we are not in a position to offer them.

 

Programmes Starting Summer Term 2020

Scholarship funding for NPQ cohorts starting in the summer term is currently under review – eligible schools who started in the Summer term will be notified if they will be in receipt of funding. Funding will be assessed under the same criteria as before.

 

Starting from September 2020

DfE scholarships are currently on pause. This doesn’t mean that there won’t be any available again, but at the moment we are not in a position to offer them.

 

DfE Information Regarding Eligibility Criteria for Summer 2020 Starters

‘Funding is available to cover the NPQ course fees of teachers and leaders working in opportunity areas and areas defined in Achieving excellence areas as categories 5 and 6, or who are employed at a school which is subject to the oversight of a multi-academy trust or diocese which also includes other schools in those areas. For teachers and leaders starting their courses from 1 April 2020 onward, this funding will cover the full course fee, provided they have not already studied for the NPQ for which they are applying. You should contact a provider for further details on how to access this funding.’

Please note that funding does not apply to Independent or Non-Maintained Schools.
