Funding and eligibility criteria

As part of the government’s long-term education recovery plan, all NPQs in 2021-22, 2022-23 and 2023-24 are FULLY FUNDED for teachers and leaders employed in state-funded schools, as well as those employed in state-funded organisations in England that offer education to 16–19-year-olds.

In addition, schools with fewer than 600 pupils on roll will receive Targeted Support Funding for every teacher or leaders who participates in an NPQ.

Scholarship eligibility

From autumn 2022, organisations eligible to access scholarships will include:

  • independent special schools.
  • virtual schools (Local Authority run organisations that support the
    education of children in care).
  • hospital schools not already included in other categories of eligible organisations.
  • young offender institutions.

Applicants from these organisations who feel they should be eligible for funding should contact continuing-professional-development@digital.education.gov.uk for more information.

In addition, Early Years practitioners and leaders working in the following
settings in England will be eligible for scholarship funding from the DfE for the NPQEYL only:

Targeted Support Funding

The DfE Targeted Support Fund gives a grant payment of £200 per participant to settings with 1-600 pupils, for every teacher or leader they employ who participates in an NPQ. Organisations that are eligible for NPQ scholarships will also be eligible for targeted support funding, with the exception of non-school based early years settings (group-based providers and childminders), virtual schools, hospital schools not already included in other categories of eligible organisations, and young offender institutions.
