National Professional Qualifications
At GLF Teaching School Hub, we are happy to be able to offer to a range of National Professional Qualifications (NPQs) in collaboration with our two partners, Education Development Trust (EDT) and Best Practice Network (BPN).
NPQs are available to those with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).
Teaching support staff can also apply for NPQs relevant to them, upon applying for a temporary Teacher Reference Number (TRN). This can be done via the Gov.uk website HERE. Once the TRN comes through, applications for NPQs can be made in the same way.
In the first instance, applicants should contact GLF Teaching School Hub, and we will be able to offer support and advice.
Applicants should be aware that there is a substantial time commitment required for NPQs and that usually they will be undertaking much of the online learning in their own free time, rather than during the school day.
We would therefore ask schools to have a robust conversation with applicants to ensure that they understand this and will be able to keep up with the online modules, especially on the specialist courses where the content comes quite quickly.
NB: DFE funding for the 24/25 academic year yet to be announced/confirmed.
