Help shape National Occupational Standards for the energy and utilities sector

NOS for the energy and utilities sector are developed by employers and experts under the guidance of Energy & Utility Skills.

Energy & Utility Skills is currently looking to understand which of our sector’s National Occupational Standards (NOS) are in need of review and development over the next two years. This will help us ensure NOS continue to be fit for purpose and meet industry needs now and in the future.

NOS specify UK standards of performance that people are expected to achieve in their work, and the knowledge and skills they need to perform effectively. NOS for the energy and utilities sector are developed by employers and experts under the guidance of Energy & Utility Skills. They are then subject to formal consultation and approval processes. They are approved by UK government regulators, to make sure they reflect industry practices across the whole of the UK.

If you are responsible for training, qualifications, learning & development or competence of staff within your organisation, we would like to hear from you. We are inviting employers, training providers and professional bodies to complete a short survey by 5pm Tuesday 1 December. You’re encouraged to share your feedback about existing NOS and any ideas for new NOS. It shouldn’t take any longer than 10 minutes to complete.
