Nos & QP

SSCs lay down the National Occupational Standards (NOS). The NOS specify the standard of performance an individual must achieve when carrying out a function in the workplace, together with the knowledge and understanding they need to meet a standard consistently. A set of NOS, aligned to a job role, called Qualification Pack, would be available for every job role in each industry sector. These drive both the creation of curriculum, and assessments. Each NOS defines one key function in a job role. In their essential form, NOS describe functions, standards of performance and knowledge/understanding.
