Register for a national professional qualification (NPQ)

Use this service to:

  • register for an NPQ or the Early headship coaching offer
  • view a previous registration

You also need to apply separately with your training provider. They’ll contact you once you’ve registered.

Before you start

You need to know:

  • which NPQ you want to do
  • who your provider is

If you have not chosen an NPQ or provider yet, learn about NPQs.

If you work in early years or childcare, check if your workplace is registered with Ofsted and get their Ofsted unique reference number (URN) if they have one.

Check if you have a teacher reference number (TRN). If you’re not a teacher you can still register, but you’ll need to request a TRN. We’ll show you how to do this.
