Who we are
The Outstanding Leaders Partnership (OLP) is a national network of over 80 Teaching School Alliances, Multi-Academy Trusts, Dioceses and schools groups working in collaboration to design, develop and deliver professional development for the education workforce.
Our qualifications are all designed by serving school leaders and subject matter experts to form a coherent learning pathway and delivered via our school-led partnership, the Outstanding Leaders Partnership (OLP). The combination of online courses, face-to-face events and enrichment practice activity create a truly blended learning experience for school leaders across their whole career.
What we do
Accredited by the Department for Education, OLP is the leading provider of the National Professional Qualifications for school leadership (NPQs) helping improve the capability, confidence and capacity of thousands of school leaders, supporting tens of thousands of school staff, and impacting the life chances of millions of pupils.
The final application deadline for our Autumn 2019 intake is 20 September. Limited scholarship funding is available in some areas (see scholarship notice). Apply before 20 September to secure your funding and place. We strongly recommend early applications as places are limited.
