This programme is designed to develop teachers who lead teacher development within their school.
The course will provide opportunities to learn about core research on how to design and deliver effective professional learning and explore examples of how to put these approaches into action.
This programme is for teachers who have, or are aspiring to have, responsibilities for leading the development of teachers at all stages of their career in their school.
All applicants must have completed 2 full years teaching following achieving QTS/QTLS/Level 5 (or equivalent) qualification.
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, will be able to access DfE funded training scholarships for all NPQs. This funding will be available for the next two years, to support participants undertaking NPQs in 22/23 and 23/24.
Organisations eligible to access funded training scholarships include:
In addition, the DfE are introducing additional payments to small schools, to enable them to support their teachers and leaders to undertake NPQs. This Targeted Support Fund will give 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.
If your school is not eligible for DfE scholarship funding, the cost for the NPQ in Leading Teacher Development (NPQLTD) is £840.
