Ambition School Leadership has recently received some important news from the DfE regarding the funding for NPQ participants from Northumberland schools.
As a category 6 area, schools in Northumberland are currently eligible to access funding from the DfE for NPQs. The DfE has recently informed our NPQ team that they intend to close the scholarships registration portal in early September for the foreseeable future. This means that any participants eligible for fully funding may no longer be able to access this scholarship funding after this point.
This impacts two of our programmes: Headship (including NPQH) and Executive Educators: leading several schools (including NPQEL) . We have therefore opened applications for our autumn cohorts of these programmes early. We are asking for participants to both programmes, who wish to access the scholarship funding, to apply by 31 August. Further details on both respective programmes and scholarship eligibility criteria can be found in the above links.
Please note that you will be invoiced for the programme and reimbursed in due course. Ambition will apply for scholarships on behalf of eligible participants and then refund successful applications as soon as they receive the funding from the DfE.
To find out if you school is eligible and for more information please contact Heather Ridley or Sean Harris on the contact details below.
