DfE FUNDING UPDATE (May 2022)

As part of the government’s long-term education recovery plan, it was announced in May 2022 that funding for fully-funded NPQ training scholarships has been extended .

The Department of Education  announced that the full suite of NPQs will be fully funded for the 2022-2023 academic year for teachers and leaders working in:

  • State-funded schools,
  • State-funded 16 to 19 organisations
  • Independent special schools
  • Virtual Schools (LA run organisations that support the education of children in care)
  • Hospital schools (not already included in other categories of eligible organisations)
  • Young Offender institutions

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

Targeted Support Funding for Small Schools (less than 600 pupils)

In addition to the scholarship funding, this year there will be Targeted Support Funding available for small schools to enable them to support their teachers and leaders to undertake NPQs. State-funded schools and 16 to 19 education settings in England, that have between 1 and 600 pupils on roll, will be paid £200.00 for each teacher or leader they employ who undertakes an NPQ. Eligibility will be based on the roll numbers that were submitted in the January 2022 pupil census and will be updated on GIAS in July 2022. Further information can be found here.
