The DfE this week announced that funding for fully-funded NPQ training scholarships has been extended until the academic year 2023 to 2024. In addition, from autumn 2022 the organisations eligible to access scholarships have been expanded to include:
state-funded 16 to 19 organisations
independent special schools
virtual schools (local authority run organisations that support the education of children in care)
hospital schools not already included in other categories of eligible organisations
young offender institutions
Local authority employed supply teachers will also be able to access scholarships.
