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 are only guaranteeing 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.



For registrations not dependent on a scholarship – we are very much continuing to accept applications – please see deadlines below.
