Help shape National Occupational Standards for the energy and utility sector

Energy & Utility Skills invites employers, training providers and professional bodies to be involved in consultations for revised National Occupational Standards (NOS).

NOS simply describe what an employee needs to do and needs to know to perform a work activity. They are subject to formal consultation and approval processes and are approved by UK government regulators. NOS are used as building blocks of in-house programme development and are a key component for qualifications and frameworks.

Energy & Utility Skills are currently reviewing the following NOS suites during 2023/24:

  • Multi-Utility Network Construction
  • Water Treatment Processing & Control
  • Water Fitting Regulation & Byelaw Enforcement
  • Smart Metering
  • Wind Turbine

With support and input from industry stakeholders, the suites have been updated to ensure they reflect current working practice, and technological changes within the industry.
