Review of Children's Care, Learning & Development NOS

Feedback on draft revisions Oct – Nov 2011.

Children’s Care, Learning & Development (CCLD) NOS are the authoritative National Occupational Standards for people who work with children (and their families) in settings or services whose main purpose is children’s care, learning and development across the UK.   The review is being managed by Skills for Care & Development (a partnership of CC Wales, CWDC, GSCC, NISCC, SfC and SSSC).

Revisions are being made to the NOS in the light of feedback from surveys and events held in May and June this year.  We now want to check that the revisions are on track by inviting feedback on a sample of the revised NOS.   Sample sets will be released for comment on:

  • Group A    feedback completed by 11 November
  • Group B    feedback completed by 25 November
  • Group C    25 November - with feedback to be completed by 9 December

Please click here to access the current survey for the CCLD NOS available for comment (Group C). 

At the same times, separate ‘self-facilitated review packs’ will be available on request for any agencies, organisations or specialists who may wish to consider the draft NOS as a group.  To request a pack please contact:  


Packs will be available for the sets of NOS listed above on the dates given.  If there are other specific NOS that a group wishes to comment on, the group should contact Laura at the email above, quoting the number and title of the NOS they wish to see.
