DfE FUNDING UPDATE (12 October 2021)
Teachers and leaders employed in state funded schools and state funded organisations that offer 16-19 places in England will be able to access a fully funded NPQ from Autumn 2021, to support teachers and pupils following the disruption to learning faced as a result of COVID-19. Download the DfE eligibility leaflet here.
Access to funding remains conditional on successful validation of participants’ registration information against Teaching Regulation Agency records, so you must ensure that the information supplied to your NPQ provider matches your teacher record. You can check and update your record at https://teacherservices.education.gov.uk/SelfService/Login
The following table summarises the costs, length and who each programme is aimed at.
How to Apply for Scholarship Funding
Application for funding is made directly to the DfE. The Application process from LLSE will guide you through the full process and aims to ensure that participants access the right course for them and aims to ensure that funding is established before enrollment. Access to funding remains conditional on successful verification of participants’ registration information against Teaching Regulation Agency records, so you must ensure that the information supplied to your NPQ provider matches your teacher record. You can check and update your record via the Teaching Regulation Agency’ Teacher Self-Service Portal.
If you are not eligible for scholarship funding, participants are able to self-fund courses.
NEXT STEPS – APPLY WITH LLSE
If you wish to continue to the next stage we would now ask that you complete an application on our delivery partner’s website – LLSE (Leadership Learning South East). LLSE hold the licence under which we will be delivering. Once the team have received your application they will send you an email with a link to the new DfE application portal and to their own application form. The process may seem quite long winded but the DfE Portal submission aims to ensure that those eligible for free NPQs have this confirmed at the start and the LLSE application ensure that you are accepted onto the right programme for you.
