DfE funding for Autumn 2024

Funding scholarships will now target those teachers and leaders working in the most challenging schools or educational settings, serving more disadvantaged communities. Funding to cover the full NPQ cost will be available to teachers and leaders from the 50% of schools with the highest proportion of students who attract pupil premium funding. This is available for all NPQs.

There are different criteria for the NPQs below. Funded places will continue to be available to all teachers and leaders from publicly funded schools and settings for the following NPQs:

  • Leading Primary Maths
  • SENCO
  • Headship

There are a limited number of funded places available. Funding for future cohorts from April 2025 is yet to be confirmed.
