  5. Are highly recommended – what do the current cohort (NPQLT cohort 2) say about us?

  • Did you know that the DfE funds all Church of England NPQs for Teachers and leaders employed in state funded schools?
  • Our aim is to ensure ‘that where a child lives has no bearing on the quality of teaching they receive’. We are therefore especially encouraging small, rural schools, to consider taking up our NPQ offer. For every teacher that takes up a free NPQ, the school will receive a £200 payment to support.
