The Oldham Education Partnership (OEP) was tasked with working alongside partners to implement the Oldham Education Skills Commission report

The OESC report set out a vision for Oldham to create a ‘Self-improving education system’ where schools, colleges and all interested parties work together in a new collaborative partnership.

Central to Oldham’s Education strategy is ensuring high quality educational provision for all of Oldham’s Children and Young People.

Strong partnership arrangements are in place, which include the Local Authority (LA), the Oldham Education Partnership (OEP) and the Opportunity Area (OA).  This involves close working with all Schools, Academies, Multi Academy Trusts (MATs), Dioceses and Teaching Schools to improve opportunities and outcomes for all. There is a shared strategic vision to improve life chances for all children and young people in Oldham through a combined approach that is owned by all partners.

Oldham knows its schools well and is very well placed to continue recent improvements across the educational system.
