OLP-Logo National Professional Qualifications

The Outstanding Leaders Partnership (OLP) is a national school-led collaboration of 47 Teaching Schools and Multi-Academy Trusts. OLP is approved by the Department for Education to provide National Professional Qualifications (NPQs) designed to deliver high quality, impact-led development training for school leaders. OLP is supported by Best Practice Network, a national training organisation.

OLP is committed to:

  • Providing all schools with access to outstanding leadership development training
  • Delivering national qualifications designed by school leaders for school leaders
  • Meeting the needs of the school-led system through the provision of local, regional and national delivery strategies
  • Measuring the impact of our work on learners, leaders and schools to drive continuous improvement

The NPQs are for serving or aspiring Middle Leaders, Senior Leaders, Headteachers and Executive Heads; each qualification is tailored to the needs of the leadership roles. The qualifications require candidates to drive sustainable school-based improvement. The provision positively impacts the skills and confidence of candidates and the success of their schools
