NPQSL Delivery and Dates


In these strange times we need to ensure more than ever our leaders have the leadership competencies to adapt to the “New Normal” and support others in their teams with drive and resilience. Although we advocate F2F facilitated learning – all of our programmes will also be available on line to ensure we continue delivery if certain restrictions remain. Also those of you in high risk groups and working from home for the foreseeable future will be supported in accessing the NPQs and moving your professional learning forward. 

SCHOLARSHIP DEADLINE – Update 21st July 2020

The Department for Education (DfE) has communicated that scholarships funding is now currently exceeding budgets available so that funding may not now be available for all programmes commencing before the 31st March 2021.  Currently, the DfE are only guaranteeing programmes commencing before the 31st July.

Therefore at this stage we can only guarantee scholarship funding for participants registered and accepted onto programmes by 24th July 2020.

The current NPQ scholarship eligibility funding criteria for state-maintained schools in England is:

  1. All schools that are in a category 5 or 6 area.
  2. All schools that are part of a Multi Academy Trust (MAT) which has a footprint (at least one school) in a category 5 or 6 area.
  3. All schools that are part of a Diocese which has a footprint (at least one school) in a category 5 or 6 area.

Example of footprint: The participant is currently working in a school in a category 4, 3 , 2 or 1 area and wouldn’t be normally be eligible for funding; however, because the participant’s school is part of a MAT or Diocese, and within that MAT / diocese there is at least one school in a category 5 or 6 area, the participant is therefore eligible for funding.


Your launch Sessions will be delivered online via webinar and access to our online learning platform. We hope to deliver remaining sessions face-to-face in your chosen delivery location.

We are currently accepting all registrations on all programmes with the following deadline in place:

NPQML and NPQSL – Deadline for registrations is Friday 18th September 2020
