For Teachers

LukeNational Professional Qualifications Scholarships

Scholarship funding is available to support Bradford teachers seeking National Professional Qualifications (NPQ) to develop their career. 

The scholarships are available for:

NPQ for middle Leadership

NPQ for Senior Leadership

NPQ for Headship

NPG for Executive Leadership


You can find out more about NPQs here.


To apply, there is a simple three step process:

  1. Identify your preferred course and provider. You can find a list of providers here. 
  1. Contact the provider and confirm your interest and check availability of places.
  1. Confirm that you meet the qualifying criteria by supplying your school URN and Teacher Reference Number.

Teachers in Bradford schools are eligible for scholarships so long as: you do not already hold the NPQ for which you are applying; have not previously dropped out before completing the NPQ for which you are applying; and have not previously failed or been removed from an NPQ course due to evidence of plagiarism.

Scholarships cover full course fees, but not travel and supply cover costs.
