The Partnership

NETSP is a consortium of education providers who work in partnership to deliver the National Professional Qualifications. Our consortium consists of:

NETSP's structure from September 2017 will extend to include Associate Partners. Associate Partners will be accountable to the NETSP board. Their main role will be to ensure participant recruitment in their schools, academies and Teaching Schools.


The manner in which we have developed and delivered NPQ qualifications over the last five years is underpinned by practical experience and theoretical understanding throughout. This is made possible because of the collaboration between serving school leaders in NETSP's partner schools, and effective partnership working with academic experts from Newcastle University North Leadership Centre and the Newcastle University School of Education, Communication and Language Sciences, who create and deliver innovative leadership development programmes in the UK and abroad.

From an operational perspective, our bespoke team of administrators acts as a lynchpin between programme participants and their facilitators and assessors, offering personalised information, advice and guidance and enabling key quality assurance processes.
