The DfE have confirmed that scholarship funding will again be available for 2020-21. In previous years, this has covered the full costs of the programme and assessment for schools in Bradford. However, the eligibility criteria for benefiting from the scholarship has not been published. Teachers and leaders can undertake one of the following programmes:
- National Professional Qualification for Middle Leaders (NPQML)
- National Professional Qualification for Senior Leaders (NPQSL)
- National Professional Qualification for Headship (NPQH)
- National Professional Qualification for Executive Leaders (NPQEL)
Potential applicants are encouraged to contact providers to discuss their options. It may be possible to apply now with a view to confirming your place once the eligibility criteria are published. This will be at the discretion of individual providers.
