A working group of subject matter experts has been working over the past few months on the review of the National Occupational Standards for Nuclear Decommissioning. These have been drafted and reviewed by the working group, overseen by the Nuclear Standards Advisory Group as the steering group. Cogent Skills is the Standards Setting Organisation for the nuclear sector and has supported the process on behalf of employers.
National Occupational Standards (NOS) are statements of the standards of performance individuals must achieve when carrying out functions in the workplace, together with specifications of the underpinning knowledge and understanding. They are used for developing skills and knowledge, direct transfer into vocational and other qualifications, frameworks for training programmes, measures of workplace competence and influencing job descriptions.
The NOS are listed on this page, with an explanatory list. Any further comments on this consultation should be emailed to Martin McManus (email@example.com) by 22nd February.
