As a result of high demand from teachers and leaders for NPQ scholarships, access to scholarship funding for new applicants was suspended in late July 2020. This scholarship suspension relates to the current suite of NPQs and will remain in place until 31 August 2022.
You will receive funding for the full course fee if you meet certain eligibility criteria and either:
To be eligible for funding, you must be a teacher or school leader working at a school which is located in an opportunity area or in an area defined in Achieving excellence areas as category 5 or 6, or employed at a school which is subject to the oversight of a multi-academy trust or diocese, which also includes other schools in those areas. In addition, you must continue to be employed at an eligible school and finally, you must not have previously been funded to undertake an NPQ course of the same level.
Access to funding remains conditional on successful verification of participants’ registration information against the database of qualified teachers (DQT), so you must ensure that the information supplied to your NPQ provider matches your DQT record. You can check and update your DQT record via the Teaching Regulation Agency.
Please contact Forest Learning Alliance here if you have any questions.
