Frequently asked questions

Is it still the case that once you have registered for a particular level of NPQ, you cannot reapply for the same level in the future?

If a programme member withdraws from an NPQ, they will not be eligible for scholarship-funded access to the same NPQ.

Example: A teacher who withdraws from a Specialist NPQ in Leading Teacher Development could be eligible for scholarship funding to take a different Specialist NPQ, such as Leading Teaching.

On successful completion of an NPQ, how is the NPQ awarded?

Certificates are awarded by the DfE, via the 'Access your teaching qualifications' website.
