National Professional Qualifications

The Halifax Academy works with the The Outstanding Leaders Partnership (OLP) to deliver a range of high quality accredited school leadership qualifications. We are committed to the ongoing development of staff and these qualifications help to nurture qualities and skills that have a positive impact on school and pupil outcomes.

OLP is a national school-led collaboration of over 60 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:

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.
