NPQ

The Arthur Terry Teaching School Hub will continue to work with Ambition to deliver the National Professional Qualifications (NPQs).

Funding

NPQ Funding has changed. You can read our updated guidance here.

Due to new funding guidelines, there are now limited places per NPQ and so we recommend submitting your application as soon as possible, once applications open. Applications will be checked carefully and will be accepted based on eligibility and suitability criteria and the application. We are unable to guarantee any places at this stage and schools and candidates should be aware that even if they are eligible for funding, they may not get a place.
