National Professional Qualification (NPQ) Scholarship Funding for the 2020/21 

The DfE has announced that scholarship funding is available for NPQ programmes between September 2020 and end of March 2021. Please note that DfE are yet to confirm what scholarship eligibility criteria will be applied and this could potentially be different to existing criteria. Once we have confirmation from the DfE of the criteria specifications, we will inform all interested applicants. Please note that the granting of a scholarship award is subject to DfE approval and is not necessarily automatically guaranteed.

Schools will need to pay the course fees to Carnegie Leaders when registering for a programme but they will be reimbursed once DfE releases the scholarship funding to Carnegie. Any questions around scholarship funding please contact Carnegie directly

The DfE reserves the right to withdraw scholarships. If you have any queries about this, please contact Carnegie Leaders.

Apply for 2020-21 NPQs (Induction September/October 2020)

Based on feedback of the 90 NPQ participants training with us in 2019-20, we’ve moved the start date for each programme to October 2020. This will help to ensure participants have relevant data and teacher assessments to show impact of their project at the end of the programme.
