Help shape the future NOS and Qualifications for the Sector

Help shape the future NOS and Qualifications for the Sector

It is the responsibility of Energy & Utility Skills to make sure they reflect current best practice across the UK, in support of this we are inviting employers, training providers and professional bodies to get involved in the review.

A full list of NOS, Qualifications and Modern Apprenticeships which are currently under review can be found here.

Energy & Utility Skills’ 2018 programme of NOS, Qualification and Modern Apprenticeship review has begun with a review of Water and Multi-Utility NOS.
