Following a meeting with the Department for Education (DfE) today, we wanted to make it public that the DfE funding for NPQ courses is once again available. This funding is offered for all NPQ courses for schools in Opportunity Areas and Category 5 & 6 areas. Real Training offers the full range of school-based NPQs, from Headship and Senior Leader level to the Middle Leader programme suited to less experienced aspiring leaders.
Allied to working with mental health and medical professionals as part of the teacher’s duty of care, there are training options available to empower educators with practical skills and knowledge to help make a positive difference to students’ scholastic and life outcomes. Real Training offers a masters module in Social, Emotional and Mental Health Needs as part of our MEd SEND programme.

We've been informed by the DfE that a hiatus on funding is about to take effect. So if you want to benefit from a government-funded NPQ, you need to enrol by 12 September. Check if your school is within a DfE opportunity area - and as such you should be eligible for a fully-funded NPQ course.
