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 that it is easy 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.
