As part of the education recovery plan, in June 2021 the department announced over £250 million of additional funding to provide 500,000 world-leading training opportunities for teachers and head teachers, at every stage of their career. This additional funding was allocated as follows:

    • £69 million to extend the rollout of the Early Career Framework (ECF) reforms to meet far higher than expected demand for the programme
    • £138 million for National Professional Qualifications (NPQs) to offer all teachers and head teachers access to qualifications to support career development

Of this £250 million in teacher quality funding, calculations are made based on participant numbers, as opposed to being calculated on a per-schools basis, which means funding amounts in each area will depend on schools’ choices of ECF programme and level of NPQ uptake.. This applies to both the ECF funding for early career teachers and mentors, and to participants undertaking a NPQ. Funding for both the ECF and NPQs is calculated per participant and is paid directly to the providers, to reduce the burden on schools.
