  • Career Development suite of National Occupational Standards

    The Career Development Institute is reviewing the Career Development suite of National Occupational Standards (NOS) after having been awarded guardianship of the NOS in early 2014.

    Since the original NOS were produced in 2011 it has been recognised that the scope of the career development sector is significantly wider than previously defined. It is important that the revised standards cover all parts of the sector and are appropriate for all nations.

    The revised NOS will be used to provide the foundation for a Career Progression Pathway for the wider career development sector across the UK; review and revise existing qualifications; develop new qualifications and apprenticeship frameworks and design and commission continuous professional development (CPD). The Standards are designed to be used by employers to support recruitment, staff appraisal/development and organisational talent management.
