We developed National Occupational Standards (NOS) for Family Learning in 2005 in close consultation with practitioners from across the UK. A review and update of the Occupational and Functional Mapping was also conducted in 2005 with the support of an Expert Working group.
Throughout the process we were supported by the Parenting Education and Support Forum, and The National Institute of Adult Continuing Education (NIACE).
About National Occupational Standards
NOS follow a similar format across all sectors; however, we work with employers and others to ensure that the relevant information required to describe best practice is included. Standards can inform qualification development, and as a minimum must include:
- A title indicative of the content of the unit
- An overview of the content of the unit
Knowledge, understanding and skills needed to effectively carry out your tasks and responsibilities within a particular job role or function
Performance statements. Detailed description of the activities which would represent effective performance of the tasks within a unit.
