NOS Governance Group 20-21 Q 1 update.pdf
As part of a series of calls for S & F developers we have identified a number of areas which we believe would be beneficial to suppliers. As there is a requirement for NOS and Apprenticeship development consultations to be also made available in the Welsh language, this session will set out what is required along with support available through the Welsh Government to allow this to be completed successfully.

NOS GG 1920 Q4 Update .pdf
We are all currently facing significant challenges to the way we live and work and this is likely to have an impact on current and future development activity with National Occupational Standards (NOS) and related products. As we reach the time of year when significant numbers of new or reviewed NOS are being published there may be a delay in this due to the availability of staff or reduced work capacity.
We would ask that you bear with us at this time as everyone including approval authorities, NOS developers, employers and other stakeholders are having to focus on working together in different ways.
