NOS are simply statements of what someone needs ‘to do’ and ‘to know’ to perform a job role. These Standards are used to underpin apprenticeships and help to guide the development of courses at all levels; as well as being a resource for industry to support recruitment and management activities across the UK

There will also be further opportunities to get involved in the NOS review in Scotland and Northern Ireland, as well as an online consultation. If you would like to book a place at any of the workshops, or be involved in future activity, please email Naomi Bonner by 18 November 16.

Please forward this information onto any of your colleagues who you think may be interested in contributing to these reviews. We hope you see the value in getting these Standards right for our industry and getting the new Apprenticeship offer the industry needs.
