Scholarship Funding
We are very pleased to inform you that National Professional Qualification (NPQ) Scholarship Funding for the 2019/20 financial year (April 2019 to March 2020) has been confirmed.

This means that:

  • Based on previous recruitment numbers, we will continue to fund the full offer up to the end of March 2020
  • The eligibility criteria remain unchanged, i.e. participants working in a category 5 or 6 area, and those working in MATs or dioceses which cover those areas, will be eligible.  

We hope this will be welcome news for you and your school leaders!

Programme descriptions can be found on the LLSE website and the application forms for NPQH and NPQEL.
