Funding for NPQs

Subject to eligibility, funding is available for leaders who wish to participate in ASCL NPQEL or NPQSL.

If you work in an opportunity or category 5 and category 6 area, or the trust that you work for has schools in one of those areas, you may be entitled to a fully funded place on the ASCL NPQEL or NPQSL programme. 

To be eligible, you must not have already studied for an NPQ that you are applying for.

Funding will cover full course costs. To confirm your eligibility, please email stating your name, school name and school URN and we will get back to you. Alternatively please call 0116 299 1122.
