National Occupational Standards Reviews

Review phases

We need employers, industry experts and other relevant stakeholders to feed into NOS reviews to make sure that the NOS are up to date and fit for purpose for the sector.

Phase 1 will comprise of Expert Working Groups, in the form of face-to-face meetings if possible, otherwise Teams/Zoom. These meetings will be used to identify key trends and developments and analyse the current NOS. Dates will be arranged for each of the four nations, for each NOS route being reviewed. There will also be a wash-up meeting at the end of the consultation period.

Phase 2 will gather feedback on the new draft NOS developed as a result of these meetings. This phase will be in the form of an electronic questionnaire which will be sent out to the wider industry, so even if you didn’t get involved in Phase 1, you will still be able to get involved in Phase 2.

To thank you for your time and input we offer a CPD certificate that can be used as evidence for any membership or other requirements. Eligible participants (minimum 3 hours’ input) will be contacted at the end of the consultation.
