Teacher Reference number (TRN)

In order to apply for an NPQ you will need to have a TRN. If you already have one but have forgotten it or you do not have a TRN, you will need to contact the DfE for clarification. You are able to request a TRN even if you do not hold QTS. We have attached a guidance sheet below which will take you through this process.
