DfE Quality Assurance Review
The recent performance review rated OLP as ‘exceptional’ overall
The review was carried out by government-appointed quality assurance agents Tribal Group and based on the DfE National Professional Qualification (NPQ) Quality Framework. They visited face-to-face provision, reviewed extensive evidence, and interviewed candidates, partners and team members.
The reviewers identified exceptional performance in most areas of the Quality Framework and highlighted strengths including:
Types of Study
The highly effective blending of online study and face-to-face sessions lies at the heart of OLP’s successful provision. This is recognised throughout the organisation and most importantly of all, by the participants themselves. It is a seamless approach with the two aspects complementing each other and allowing participants with different learning styles to benefit.
These two aspects are enriched by opportunities for participants to work with their peers and to learn from in-school mentors/sponsors as well as coaches in the NPQH and NPQEL programmes. NPQEL participants were very complimentary regarding the support and guidance received through ‘expert’ coaching received. One indicated that access to such high-quality coaching was proving to be a significant factor in their personal journey through the programme and their leadership.
Support for Participants
The systems are well thought out so that appropriate support is available at every stage, right through from the application process to assessment. The experience and knowledge of key people such as facilitators and online tutors ensure that they understand the needs of participants and can pre-empt most of their concerns along the programme pathways.
