National Occupational Standards for Learning and Development

The NOS are designed for learning and development practitioners who are involved in developing and assessing the skills, knowledge and competence of learners primarily in the workplace or in work-related programmes of learning. They apply therefore to the following types of job roles in the lifelong learning sector for which learning and development is the main purpose: in-house trainers and training managers external trainers, managers and consultants assessors verifiers.

In addition, individual NOS will be valuable to staff in all sectors who have an learning and development function as part of their job role; for example: workplace managers and supervisors experienced staff with responsibility for developing colleagues with less experience, skills and knowledge assessors verifiers.

    Hi There, I am currently assessing the old L&D standards for Pertemps People Development Group and would be very interested to know when the new QCF standards are coming out as the PDF does’t work above.

      Hi Phil,

      The link to the PDF is now working, many thanks for the spot. I’ll pass on your query regarding the QCF standards to the Standards and Qualifications team.

      Best wishes
