Vehicle recyclers have the opportunity to raise standards in the vehicle recycling industry as the IMI develops National Occupational Standards for Vehicle Recycling

Vehicle recycling

The IMI would like employers, industry experts and other relevant stakeholders to feed into the project in order to make sure that the National Occupational Standards (NOS) are fit for purpose for the sector.

For some, National Occupational Standards will be well known, for others, this may be the first time you’ve heard of them. 

NOS are used to help develop qualifications used in apprenticeship frameworks in Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland as well as the IMI accreditation scheme for staff in all nations of the UK. The standards describe what an individual in a certain role should be able to do and the knowledge and understanding they need. Companies can use them to help design their in-house training, on-the-job coaching, or performance management systems.

And this is where we need your help.

Phase 1 of the feedback will be carried out electronically via Teams and/or Zoom, 6th to 9th September

  • England – Monday 6th September
  • Scotland – Tuesday 7th September
  • Northern Ireland – Wednesday 8th September
  • Wales* – Thursday 9th September

*Participants in Wales will be asked whether they wish to have the meeting conducted in Welsh or English.

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.
