NPQSL – Delivery


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 Update September 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 have only guaranteed scholarships for participants who commenced their NPQ programmes with us before the 31st July 2020.

Please do watch for further notifications on this website regarding scholarship funding as we anticipate there will be a new round of scholarship funding announced by the DfE

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.


The deadline for registrations for NPQML and NPQSL was Friday 18th September 2020.   If you wish to take part in an NPQ please still register and we will ensure you are notified as soon as further cohorts are available.   Taking part in a purely online version of your NPQ is also feasible (please select this on your registration form).
