SummitSkills is undertaking a review of the National Occupational Standards (NOS) in the building services engineering sector.
These NOS define the competencies that are required by those carrying out certain functions within their job role to a nationally-recognised level.
They inform the content, design and delivery of skills-based appraisals of individuals and organisations, and job specifications, training and assessment programmes and qualifications for occupations in the electrotechnical, heating and ventilating, air conditioning and refrigeration, plumbing industries.
The purpose of this consultation is to ensure that the NOS standards are fit-for-purpose and reflect the competence requirements of the sector.
Please take a few minutes to review the NOS standards in this area and complete a survey about them, which you can do here (if you need to copy and paste the URL it is https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/HVNOS4-8). The consultation closes at midnight Monday 27th January 2014.
