Does your school qualify for the £200 DfE Targeted Support Fund?

From autumn 2022, state-funded schools and state-funded 16 to 19 educational settings in England with  1 to 600 pupils on roll will be paid £200 for each teacher or leader they employ who takes an NPQ.  This is to help teachers and leaders in smaller settings who may find it harder to engage with professional development.

Funding is not available for participants taking the early headship coaching offer unless they are also taking another NPQ course.

If you work in a school, you can search the Get Information About Schools (GIAS) database to check how many pupils are recorded for your school. If you work in a 16 to 19 education setting, you can check the list of 16 to 19 organisations eligible for targeted support funding in the academic year 2022 to 2023.

Payments will be grant funded in arrears via existing Education and Skills Funding Agency (EFSA) channels the summer after NPQ participants begin their course. Eligibility for targeted support funding will be determined automatically as participants complete the registration process, and there is no need to apply for this funding separately.
