The Department for Education funding window for March offered to Opportunity and Category 5 & 6 areas has now closed. We anticipate – though it is not yet confirmed – that there will be funding available for the May 2019 cohort. If your school is in a Category 5 or 6 area and you wish to reserve a place in anticipation of funding becoming available, please complete the online booking form as soon as possible.
Following our article last month informing you of the new March cohort for our three National Professional Qualifications (NPQs), we wanted to write a new article to let you know that the Department for Education (DfE) has now confirmed that funding is definitely available for March for schools based in the category 5 and 6 areas. With limited places available on our programmes and further funding not guaranteed beyond March, we recommend that you make your booking as soon as possible.
