NPQ funding explained – The wait is finally over…

Here at Services For Education we can help school leaders and aspiring school leaders navigate the uncertainty and mystery surrounding National professional Qualification (NPQ) funding for Autumn 2024.

There’s been considerable uncertainty over the last few months about how NPQs will be funded from Autumn 2024, and we know that for many of you this has meant the decision to embark on one of the specialist NPQs or leadership NPQs has been a tricky one to navigate.

You may be wondering what the latest NPQ funding announcement shared by the DfE means for you and your NPQ journey. You’ll be pleased to know that Services For Education can take some of that worry away and provide you with much needed clarity on the subject of scholarship funding.
