National Occupational Standards (NOS) in Playwork – statement from the Playwork Principles Scrutiny Group


SkillsActive, the sector skills council for active leisure, learning and well-being, is currently leading the UK review of the National Occupational Standards (NOS) in Playwork.

In response to the consultation, the Playwork Principles Scrutiny Group has prepared a statement. The purpose of the statement is self-evident.
The Playwork Principles Scrutiny Group considers that the revised National Occupational Standards should not be informed by any statement other than the Playwork Principles.
