News & Events

The Enginuity Skills Awards 2022 will see industry leaders gather to recognise the brilliant apprentices, champions of skills development, and innovative engineers tackling society’s biggest challenges, who will ensure the future of a sector that is the backbone of the UK economy.


We exist to give one Engineer the opportunity to change their world and ours. Enginuity provides such opportunity through the creation of practical skills solutions for individuals, educators, and manufacturing and engineering employers who want to see and develop the skills they need to succeed.


National Occupational Standards

National Occupational Standards (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, which are approved by UK government regulators, are available for almost every role in every sector in the UK.

Employers need to know that NOS ensure competence. In partnership with employers we’ve ensured 2,500 NOS are robust and consistently benchmarked, nationally and internationally.

Together with the qualifications and apprenticeship frameworks they underpin, NOS provide a rigorous and high-quality skills infrastructure for occupations within the spectrum of engineering and advanced manufacturing sectors.

To date, we’ve developed more than 2,500 NOS in partnership with employers. These standards are used in Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, and internationally, to provide a robust and consistent benchmark of the skills needed by a competitive workforce.

Setting occupational standards with industry

We work directly with employers to identify and define the skills and knowledge people need to work successfully in our sectors. Our standards are developed with employers for employers. We invite all employers to work with us on our Standards and Apprenticeship Frameworks.


NOS are used to:

  • Inform the content of Vocational Qualifications such as N/SVQs and Technical Certificates used in Apprenticeship Frameworks
  • Benchmark the skills and measure the performance of current employees
  • Identify any skills gaps and shortages
  • Develop company training and assessment programmes
  • Shape job specifications
  • Develop job descriptions and person specifications for recruitment
  • Undertake staff appraisals and/or set individual or team objectives


All NOS are available from the NOS website. For more information, or if you are unable to find the NOS you require, please call 0845 643 9001 or email [email protected]
