Best Practice Network

BPN is your RPA in the West Midlands, South West and East of England regions.

Best Practice Network is a very experienced HLTA assessment provider having assessed over 8,000 HLTAs in more than 3,400 schools - nursery, primary, secondary, as well as academies, special schools, PRUs and specialist support services. Involved in HLTA since its introduction, BPN has also successfully trained and prepared over 4,000 HLTAs. Extensive support is available to candidates through a dedicated HLTA team.

If you are based in either the South West, West Midlands or the East of England and are considering gaining HLTA we strongly recommend that you undertake your preparation with Best Practice Network or one of our partner Providers of Preparation (POPs). We believe this is the most effective way of maximising your chances of success in gaining HLTA and has a number of other benefits including the opportunity to network with other HLTA candidates and to discuss your HLTA tasks with an experienced tutor/assessor. For details of our preparation for assessment programme and for information on our partner PoPs, who all work to the national HLTA Code of Practice (see resources), please email
