Field service crew testing electronics or inspecting electrical installation system. Bay control unit. Medium voltage switchgear

Enginuity’s Technical department is leading a UK wide review/new development of the following National Occupational Standards (NOS):

  • Composite Engineering Suite 3 (review)
  • Advanced Manufacturing (NEW)
  • Semi-Conductor (NEW)

The current suites of NOS and qualifications were developed in partnership with employers and other appropriate organisations across the UK. NOS set out the skills, knowledge and understanding required by employers to undertake a particular task or job role to a nationally recognised level of competence, helping formalise training requirements for employers and employees across the UK. They also form the basis of vocational qualifications including those used in Apprenticeship Frameworks. As part of our philosophy of continuous improvement, Enginuity are now requesting feedback from relevant stakeholders to ascertain whether the current NOS are still fit for purpose and if not, what changes are required?

The key areas that the review will focus on:

  • Are the current occupational pathways (job roles) still relevant and current in the structures?
  • If not what changes are required?
  • Such as the addition of more optional units?
  • Are there any missing NOS that should be developed and be included?
  • Is the content of the NOS technically correct?
  • Is there anything missing in the scope of the NOS and /or knowledge statements?
  • Is there anything that should not be in the NOS e.g. redundant procedures/processes/equipment?
  • Is it clear what must be completed in order to achieve the NOS?
  • Can the outcomes specified in the NOS be achieved in the workplace?

Review Timescales

The projects begin in July 2021 and are scheduled to complete by January 2022 including a UK wide employer and stakeholder consultation.

How to get involved?
