Teachers and leaders in Norwich hoping to progress in their careers could have some of their costs met by the government.
The Department for Education has launched a £10m scholarship fund for leadership development in areas with the lowest rates of social mobility.
The 12 opportunity areas include Norwich, and the money will be eligible to fund participants taking National Professional Qualifications (NPQs) for middle, senior or executive leadership or headship.
The government is finalising the criteria for applications, but has confirmed it will apply to those working in an opportunity area, who do not already hold, or have previously dropped out of, the NPQ for which they are applying.
They say further criteria will be considered if the scheme is oversubscribed, but funding will be payable in every financial year up to 2019/2020.
