  • All maintained schools in England are eligible for limited scholarships for NPQ for SENCOs, NPQH and EHCO.
  • Only the top 50% of maintained schools in England with the highest percentage of pupil premium enrolments are eligible for limited scholarships for NPQLT, NPQLBC, NPQLTD, NPQLL, NPQEYL, NPQSL, NPQEL.

*The option for schools to self-fund any of the above NPQs is also available as well as our dual qualification Leaders Apprenticeships with NPQs, which can be funded through the Apprenticeship Levy.
