Robin Walker the Minister of State for School Standards, said

“We are investing a huge amount in teacher development as part of our education recovery, reflecting the fundamental role that quality teaching has as we support our young people back from the impact of the pandemic. 

It’s vital that we maximise the reach of this investment, so as many teachers as possible – and as many young people as possible – can benefit. That’s why, going forward, we are now making the newly reformed suite of National Professional Qualifications (NPQ’s) freely available to all teachers and leaders in state-funded schools and colleges, and I hope this will encourage lots more teachers to apply.” 

We would encourage all interested teachers to apply before 17th December, and contact Generate Teaching Hub  with any questions.
