Small Schools Grant

Smaller Schools can Access a £200 NPQ grant

From Autumn 2022, the Department for Education have announced that state-funded schools and state-funded 16 to 19 educational settings with up to 600 pupils will be paid £200 for each teacher or leader they employ who completes an NPQ.

The rationale behind this additional grant is to help teachers and leaders in smaller settings who may find it harder to engage with professional development.

The funding will be paid for each NPQ participant in these eligible settings. The money comes on top of the fact that all NPQs are fully funded until 2023/24 for state school applicants.

Is My School Eligible?

If you work in a school, you can search the Get Information About Schools (GIAS) database to check how many pupils are recorded for your school.

If you work in a 16 to 19 education setting, you can check a list of 16 to 19 organisations eligible for targeted support funding in the academic year 2022 to 2023.

How Will Payment Be Made?

Payments will be grant funded in arrears via existing Education and Skills Funding Agency (EFSA) channels the summer after NPQ participants begin their course.

Eligibility for targeted support funding will be determined automatically as participants complete the registration process and there is no need to apply for this funding separately.
