It is important that the National Occupational Standards (NOS) are kept up to date. The NOS are used to form the basis of vocational qualifications, Apprenticeship programmes and a number of professional standards.
They provide a clear description of the skills, knowledge and understanding that an individual must be able to demonstrate in order to perform their job to the required standard.
Energy & Utility Skills is currently undertaking a review of the following NOS and associated products:
- Gas Network Construction
- Multi Utility Network Design
- Domestic Natural Gas Installation and Maintenance
- Wind Turbine
We are also currently reviewing the following Scottish qualifications (CBQs) – all at SCQF level 5:
- Electrical Power Engineering – Distribution and Transmission
- Electrical Power Engineering – Overhead Lines
- Electrical Power Engineering – Substation Plant
- Electrical Power Engineering – Underground Cables
We will be carrying out consultations over the summer and would welcome your views on the area or industry you are familiar with.
The links will take you to NOS or qualifications you wish to review. There is a feedback form, which we would be grateful if you could complete and return to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 1 September 2017.
Your input is crucial in this project to ensure that the standards and qualifications for the sector remain valid, current and truly reflect the needs of the sector.
We are also working with SQA Awarding Body to review the following SVQ
- Designing Water Networks at SCQF Level 6
If you would like any additional information or wish to get involved in the SVQ review, please contact email@example.com.
