DfE funding now available for NPQ training

Following a meeting with the Department for Education (DfE), 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.

As a DfE-accredited NPQ provider, our programmes contain the core learning outcomes set down by the Department. However, Real Training NPQ courses are different in a number of ways. Our NPQ courses are:

  • Delivered fully online. This gives our participants the flexibility to work at a time, place and pace which suits their professional and personal lives.
  • Flexible and contain no internal deadlines. As a company owned by former educators, we’ve created flexibility to allow teachers to work when suits them, to avoid adding stress.
  • Tutored on a one-to-one basis by highly-experienced, expert tutors.
  • Founded on an inclusive ethos, and informed by the latest psychological insight.

If you want to register yourself or members of your team for our January intake, you simply need to complete a registration form.

Please note that schools in funded areas are not limited in the number of participants they can enrol. For as long as the funding is in place, you can sign-up as many eligible team members as you wish.

If you are looking to take advantage of this funding, though, we would strongly recommend registering soon as we are not clear how long the window will be open for.
