National Occupational Standards

Support Us

The National Occupational Standards (NOS) are a set of benchmarks developed by SkillsActive, the sector skills council for active leisure, learning and wellbeing, that outline the competence required by playworkers in a number of areas.

They are available at levels two, three, and four, and underpin what playworkers study when taking qualifications at these levels.

National Occupational Standards have a variety uses such as developing job descriptions and inductions or designing specialist training programmes.
