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
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.
NPQML is for individuals who are, or are aspiring to become, a middle leader with responsibility for leading a team e.g. a key stage leader, a subject leader, or a head of department.
