DfE Update: NPQ Funding from Autumn 2024


The DfE have announced that NPQ funding from Autumn 2024 will be targeted to those teachers and leaders working in the most challenging schools or educational settings, serving more disadvantaged communities. 

Therefore, funding to cover the full NPQ cost will only be available to teachers and leaders from the 50% of schools with the highest proportion of students who attract pupil premium funding and 16-19 educational settings identified as having high disadvantage. 

Funding will continue, however, to be available to all teachers and leaders from publicly funded schools and 16-19 educational organisations for the following NPQs:

  • Leading Primary Maths
  • Headship 

For full details, visit Funding for national professional qualifications (NPQs) - GOV.UK (

Further information regarding NPQs costs will be provided by the Hub in due course.
